Recently there was a thread on how we are only 10% Human and 90% microbes, but doesn't this mean those microbes are Human? That the whole one hundred
percent is the total makeup of one man?
Well, I started to wonder of the planet Earth we call our home. Everything engulfed by the very atmosphere, is built of Earth. Wether we like it or
not, we were born of earth and what we were made of will always be somewhere on Earth. That is of course until the earth is no more.
Which got me to thinking, we are the Earth's microbes. We are individual to the planet but we are part of that 100%. If one of us was to fly into
space, Earth would fail to be whole. Does this mean as part of Earth, as a whole we are Earth? Would that make Earth a smart planet? A conscious
One day Earth will die, of that there is no doubt. But if we Humans can strive to inhabit other planets and travel throughout space, how amazing would
it be not to imagine, but to know Earth will never die out. A part if but only a small percentage will escape and live on maybe for eternity.
Maybe the dream of the afterlife, was a dream of earth living on after the planet ceases to exist, and as Humans, being part of earth I suppose life
after death does exist.
