Scene: In an artificial bubble on the surface of Ganymede (one of Jupiter's moons),
an alien explorer describes his visit to Earth.
Can you give us a general picture of Earth and its inhabitants?
The planet is rather pretty, with lots of natural resources. "Fertile" isn't too strong a word, especially when compared with most places in the local system. There are lots of energy sources, easily accessed, and lots of chemical resources as well. And we think this fertility is why the Earth's inhabitants — the "humans" — have such distorted ideas about reality.
Everything is too hot or too cold, too big or too small. Reality is viewed solely in terms of a human's immediate needs.
