As Einstein demonstrated, our perception of the universe is relative to our position.
Many of us, especially the religious, believe that Humans are the superior species on Earth.
That is the view from "above", which is one-half the story.
Recently, I was reminded of a "non-fiction" horror movie that came out in the 70's (Hellstrom Chronicle).
Here are some comments I read in a 2003 public post from "FeverDog" (MadDog's relative?):
Insects are more equipped to outlive Man in the long run. Insects have a 200-million-year head start, don't have feelings, don't ponder their own existence, don't fight within their species, can adapt to their surroundings, live harmoniously with their environment, have been using 'robots' and the airwaves long before we came to be, and aren't afraid to die. Nothing Man throws at them (like pesticides) can stop their reproduction; insects quickly develop immunities while Man chokes on its own weaponry while polluting its environment. And, it would take Man a million years to repopulate the world after nuclear fallout; insects could do it in weeks
Perhaps humans created religions to supplement their political strategies for social control and dominance, but that may not be enough to counter the laws of nature that insects live by:
The Earth was created not with the gentle caress of love, but with the brutal violence of rape.
