Well, isn’t that special… ;)

I think about this often. The next level is to apply it to consciousness, especially to “intentionality”, and realize that humanity isn’t all that special either: just clever at telling ourselves how important we (and our imaginary beings) are. I don’t imply knocking humans down for spite, but bringing all other matter up to our egotistically inflated playing field: especially imagining that future people and things have equal rights to resources as present people. When Jefferson (?) said that “life belongs to the living”, I don’t think he meant unfettered rapacity for selfish living in the ‘now’, but I don’t think he imagined people would forget to work for the betterment of their children’s world (Increase).
