But if these rotting logs are amazing environments allowing us to
fullfill our potential and striving, does it really matter? I don't
think having humanity as number one for all eternity is a particularly
important goal - it reeks of mammalian territoriality. What really
matters is what we can get out of a situation, and if some other
entities can get even more out of it but we still do wonderfully, then I
think that is a win-win situation.
Of course, we should never abandon our ambition to become greater, but
there may be many different directions of greatness.
