In complete truthfullness, this is quite the topic for discussion. The question in itself is a question that when asked by a young adult or child, shows the intuitive and imaginative thought processes racing through their beautiful minds. We as humans are now starting to realize even more our role in the world. More specifically, our role in nature. In the past we have thought of ourselves as the superior species in the world. And we treated our entire environment as such. Instead of taking care of the animals and the earth, we neglected it, not realizing all along that the very products of nature that we were neglecting were the very resources we were destroying. At first though, we didn't notice it because we were like little children. We didn't know any better. Our understanding of the effects of our misuse of resources was very narrowminded. The Industrial Revolution was the start of something great for us as humans, however, it was the beginning of destruction for everything in nature. Because we as humans have produced more pollution than any other species we have to reconsider the belief that we're superior. I know it may be hard to believe that we're not the superior species, but the fact is there are other species that have existed millions of years longer than we have without polluting the environment. Besides the environmental effects are other reasons why we as humans will have to start looking to nature and animals as our resource for improving ourselves and the world. There are certain characteristics that make each and every species unique. For instance, did you know that a spider can produce a waterproof silk that not only beats the pants off Kevlar for toughness and elasticity, it is also ounce for ounce, five times stronger than steel! This very discovery alone shows how much more valuable nature is to the advancement of technology especially when in the sustainability and renewable resource department, specifically the fiber industry. Spiders have been in existance for some 380 million years! But this is nothing. Read the book called Biomimicry. You'll find more truth there. It's a revolutionary new science that deals with mimicing the best nature has to offer. The Biomimicry Revolution is taking over. It's one revolution that is sure to be a success, without doing harm to our environment. See, animals are smarter than humans. More accurately though, animals are more adaptive and unique in ways that we're not. This is Knowledge signing off.
