What Turns will Nature's Cycle Now Take?
In the course of their lives, organisms eat and are eaten, compete with and cooperate with, and have relationships with many individuals of the same species and other species. Organisms come and go in various environments, being affected by and having an effect on the environment at the same time. The human species lives this way as well, as an organism having an especially great impact on other species and nature.
We humans need to be aware that we are on stage for only a single scene in the long history of the Earth. For this reason, and for the sake of imagining a role for nature in the future, let's pay careful attention to the state of nature as it exists now. We should realize that we have a big impact on nature. Let's take a close look at the current natural history in order to realize it, and also in order to imagine nature in the future.
