This is my vision for “Future Earth”—a world where humans live in balance with all other species, and give up the dangerous myth that “humans are special.” All species are special (it’s what makes them different species). And there is nothing especially special about human specialness. Only when we let go of that self-serving myth will our planet stand a chance of sustaining the bountiful variety of living systems that Earth has so beautifully created and nourished for the billions of years we have circled around the life-giving light of our Sun. May it long continue. And may we continue to walk the journey of evolution.
