Is the world better off for having ape dominance systems, or is it a worse place? I think it’s worse for it. And it speaks to my idea that all humans are fundamentally rotten. Give anyone power and their true nature will be revealed.
Here’s a little story from the beginning of time. At the big bang there was hydrogen and then helium, with a tiny bit of lithium. Soon gravity made some of that hydrogen stars. The heaviest of them exploded, thus creating heavier elements such as: oxygen, carbon, sulfur, phosphorus, nitrogen, etc. I want you to remember SPONCH. That is Sulfur, Phosphorus, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Hydrogen. They are some of the most common elements in the universe and they are the most abundant elements in our bodies. Consider also that each element is made from protons, neutrons and electrons, with protons and neutrons being made of up quarks and down quarks while being held together with gluons. Also consider, every eukaryotic life form today is descended from one event eons ago when some archaea merged with a mitochondria and this lead to more complex lifeforms. Lifeforms such as: trees, roaches, whales and people. We are all made of common elements, which are basically made from two quarks and an electron. We are all descended from some bacteria-like life form and its union with mitochondria. We all have stinky poop. None are special. So you tell me why we have this civilization today with its dominance hierarchy and people pretending to be special?
