What are we?
what are we but a mere two specks on a world of seven billion?
what is our world but an average-sized sphere amongst a limit of spheres to which we know no bound?
our galaxy to endless others in this vast universe?
what is our mind?
what is our mind but a combination of neurotransmitters and cranial lobes?
a random assortment of ones and zeros?
Our universe, constantly the topic of debate since our birth
big bang vs. creationism
science vs. religion
old vs. new
There is one thing that can be agreed on
through the eyes of the priest, God struggled and worked diligiently to create this glorious and bountiful universe to which we are a part of
in the perspective of the skeptical scientist, it took millions of years for that minute particle of creation to explode and expand upon the scene
And yet, we destroy and waste and kill and abuse and dominate everything around us
environment is a sham
ecosystems are dumping grounds
i fear the day that outer space is classified as an ecosytem
i fear the day that oil is discovered on one of Jupiter's moons
that would be nuclear war at its finest
Our planet took an abosrbatant amount of time to create and develop up to this point
however we have the potential to render all that struggle useless
to stomp on it like a bully stomps on your paper mache
Historians assert that our textbooks are often eurocentric
they assert that censored countries exhibit completely biased information
food for thought
we are human-centric
We are so caught up in our struggle to the top of the world food chain
we have forgotten what supports us
what allows us to live the way we do
we turn a cold shoulder to the environment in congress every day
we as a people turn a cold shoulder, when we through trash out of our gas-guzzling vehicles
we are all guilty
we need to change not so that our future generations can survive
but so that the entire planet as a whole can survive
so that the worlds and galaxies and universes around us can survive
humans are simply random assortments of DNA
ones and zeros.
when this eternal conflict eventually runs its length
we'll all be zeros.
