Polite reminder: Earth is a tree planet with some bacteria. Everything else is just the extra stuff that lives here too.

@InvaderXan Can we say that humans are just parasites, who are slowly killing the host?


@SeventhMagpie Certain types of human do seem to fit that description. But I think it's more that humans are a component of the system which is out of balance.

Any little ecosystem, from a fishtank to a sourdough culture, can get out of balance sometimes. It might mess stuff up for a while and do some damage. Eventually though, the system needs to find a balance, and usually does.

Humans just need to realise that they're part of such a system and learn to balance themselves within it.

This "out of balance" stuff is a very good point/hint to all if us - thanks.
Let's hope, we'll learn that soon.
