An Answer to Gaia

Mankind…we have long ago past the turning of the tide. There is no going back to a virgin world amongst the beasts. The laws of the universe compel us onwards. Our only option; to reach the other side, to harness this insane rush to become better than we are.

Only in complete mastery, in the humility that comes from hard won understanding, can we find the wisdom to save this world. We are not yet the finished article. This world, and all her wondrous gifts of life have hope yet. We must place this hope in ourselves.

And if this answer, so assured in human arrogance fails to satisfy, to ring that fateful bell of final truth, try this instead…In years to come, perhaps tomorrow, or in a million spins around the sun, we shall join that vast and worthy majority, silent in their halls beneath the earth, where almost all that ever swum, crawled, walked or flew over this world have their final rest. There we shall at last know peace, and as our shadow shrinks from the surface of the earth, a new dawn shall rise in blissful ignorance, the howl of the beast shall echo in the wild, and none shall know we ever were.

In that she may find some justice, or maybe not.
