Utterly exquisite, isn't it Rev? How can one comprehend that and not wonder about a guiding hand? The spleandor, utter beauty, and sheer majesty of that corner of creation the we can "see" always makes me feel small and humble, perhaps because I believe there's so much more to see and understand just a little bit farther beyond..
I wouldn't worry much about homo sapiens. We're not even a blip on the cosmic radar. Heck, the dinosaurs lived 1000 times longer than we have, so far. And any species that invents politicians ain't going nowhere, nohow, anyway. We won't get there, but when we pass, the next species might, or when they pass, the next. But sooner or later good old Terra is gonna spread some genes out there and take part in whatever community happens to be hoppin at the moment. It's a great time to be alive, yeah?
Nous n'avons pas peur! Vive la liberté! Moi aussi je suis Charlie!
