When I think about all the horrors humans not only inflict upon themselves, but on the Earth, I truly start to despise our ‘being’.
The Earth itself is changing with heat escaping from the lower levels of the crust; under the icecaps, sink holes, earthquakes and tsunamis to name a few, all change what we see as landscape, all the time.
So why do humans see the Earth as a battle ground? What is driving some countries to wage war? What is power? The Earth and it’s resources could well be needed by our race, but are they not needed by the Earth itself?
As we unbalance the world with the redistribution of all its resources, our buildings, heavy machinery and our ever expanding population. We put pressure on the polar axis. It’s been proven that we are somewhat responsible for tilting the Earth to its current position due to this very thing.
I feel as though, while we trawl through the Earth, destroying and changing habitats, the Earth is becoming nothing but a farm, where humans are slaves to the machine they created, the cycle of wealth and greed consuming them. I wonder what will happen when those resources are gone, will we adapt? And if so why can’t we adapt now before it’s too late to save ourselves from the natural disasters we create.
I wonder if this Earth will be able to support my children’s children, and so on. Will they know what we did to the Earth or will they blindly stumble and continue forward as the Earth becomes hotter, less green, less habitable for all species.
I think we are too late to save the Earth from Humanity, but maybe that’s a good thing. When humanity wipes itself out like the people before us did, the Earth will consume again all our buildings and materials, breaking them back down. And a new civilisation will develop, they will find our gold rings, our strange building remains and wonder what happened. New species will evolve and they will dig up our remains to showcase in their own museums.
Maybe the internet will survive and they can read about us, when the world has changed.
