I was thinking the other day that we may destroy ourselves someday, just blow ourselves into smithereens somehow until there is no human being walking the earth, and the earth will be better for it. Is it inevitable? Maybe. Maybe not. One likes to think that wisdom will prevail, but who can say for sure if there is enough wisdom to prevent such a thing? One thing is for certain, the Dao will go on whether we do or not, or whether someone is still around to remember such a fact. The Dao cannot be destroyed no matter how stupid we are.
