You see, the problem is not with Earth, which has existed for 4.5 billion years and will continue to exist for another 3.5 billion years. Humanity’s outlook does not look so bright. The smartest animal ever lived is on a trajectory to live the shortest.
The real problem is that before I came along, humanity has never developed a theory compatible with nature, and thus the expansion of human ingenuity does not make humans more adaptable to nature’s entropy.
And without a human theory compatible with nature’s first-principles, with systems that embed said theory, combined with paradoxical rules to instill collective trust in our humanitarian compass, not planet earth will suffer, but humans will.
We must let go of the notion we mother Earth. In reality, nature mothers us. Our problems are as Prins William points out right here on earth, but as you can see from the slide above, they are human problems, not nature’s.
