Of course I realize there are many habitable planets scattered loosely throughout the galaxy. Our galaxy. Can’t even grasp the concept of billions of other galaxies out there, but I’m starting to get a pretty good feeling of what our galactic environment is at this moment. We are a one of many planets that actually support and share, when you think of it, a fairly narrow band of existence. That of large brained, tool using organisms that have overcome and dominated their environment to the point where there survival is being threatened by that very adaptability. In other words, it evolves into a taker of what is there. And the there part becomes less and less and gets smaller and smaller till there is nothing to consume, except oneself. Obviously, in other words, extinction.
Tune in later
