I tend to think of humans as more of a plague than a parasite. A parasite will hop off it's host when it's done feeding. A plague, disease, virus, etc. will swarm its host until the host dies. Concerned with nothing but consuming and reproducing. That's sounds a bit closer to me.

But you're only looking at one side of it. We're also the most creative lifeform on the planet. Poetry, art, language, music, thought, reason, philosophy, exchange of ideas.
One could just as easily look around and ask what the other species of life contribute?
A lion is born. It's life consists of nothing but hunting and killing other life so that it can survive and give birth to more lions who will do the same.
Where is the meaning? What's the point?
Humans might not have all the answers, but at least they are able to ask questions. At least they are able to recognize and appreciate the natural beauty of a lion taking down its prey.
