Yes it seems quite an interesting feat...we have the greatest capacity to love and to hate on the planet, and yet we seem to enjoy creating fear more than sowing love. Why is that I wonder?

I agree. Yet, knowing that, and seeing it, why do we Humans seem to not be able to overcome it? Is there some sort of preventive Primal Urge, some mental block, or, are we just collectively too stupid and/or ignorant to overcome it and move forward? If indeed there is, then waht is it, and what do we do about it?

I wonder what humanity is like from the point of view of the earth. Perhaps from the view of the planet, we are like a bad virus. We drill into the planet, take out oil and burn it for our own needs.
We cut down trees, level fields and plant crops that wouldn't be there by themselves. How would we be viewed by the planet?
Perhaps, the earth is has it's own defense mechanism and it will use it against us. Heat up the whole planet, and how many will survive? Open up a hole in the ozone layer and fry those responsible. Melt the ice and flood them out of existance.
Is this all just a mechanism the earth is using to rid itself of us?
