John Lennon?

Notice how I anthropomorphized this god-like creature that represents everything we know and ever will know? 'Why not', I say, and so should you!

All We Need Is Love

John Lennon?

For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
— Carl Sagan (1934-1996)

The titled responsion is...

Small creatures on a hostile planet? If we are held captive on this pale blue dot, then I have to ask, couldn't we benefit from a little Stockholm syndrome? The correct response is psychological and occurs when hostages or abuse victims bond with their captors or abusers. Does she not abuse us? I, for one, am captivated by her beauty; our viral infection diminishes her beauty as we speak. Existential? Yes indeed. Consumption is endemic to our species, yet what we "choose" to consume is another story. A narrative fiction that, if told loud enough, can translate and replicate into a cultural norm. This would be ideal. A bearable existence on a hostile yet beautiful planet "designed" for our species and the ecosystem that supports her.

Notice how I anthropomorphized this god-like creature representing everything we know and ever will know? Why not, I say, and so should you! The ethical implications for this bifurcating gender emphasis are rather plebian. And so it should be. Biological, that is!

Smaller creatures exist beside us, bred if you will, as best friends to the fictionalized God we vehemently defend. Walking among us, albeit on four legs instead of two, the mammalian wellspring bonded well before dogmas ruled the world. Now that's a pedadoggy worth following!
