I was sitting outside earlier and the most beautiful mosquito black and white striped set itself down my arm where bodily hair doesn’t cover and I could feel the very faint sting, it flew off straight after but the brief visit was enough to make me consider my role in nature and in this case my place in the food chain.
Same as plants we employ insects it seems, and we play host to a multitude of organisms also, we only have to think about the intestinal tract.
Yet we play God over so many other species, cage them up, experiment on them, surely these lower than animal behaviours must also be reflected in the world outside.
And just look at the news today and see that it is.
Why not think about where your coffee table comes from and think about the lives lost under the axe every day.
Basically our required tastes will mean the end of the species.
My conclusion: Best we enjoy all this while it lasts.
