We tend to praise the new and wonderful things and ideas in today’s world. Yet we ignore the natural world we are living in which sustains our lives. Why don’t we question why native people chose to live with the land? It’s apparent our ancestors assumed that native people were just less educated therefore of less value than themselves. They who come from the western world with the new world mindset of exploring land just to exploit it for their new ideas, it’s they who fail to think of the future. What good is gold or oil if our world is depleted of its resources for our inheritors? As we have grown more and more accustomed to our artificial worlds of concrete and plastic and automation we have lost connection with the land. We can’t see the signs of it’s decay until the decay affects our profits or ideas to create our artificial world. Which is likely to reveal the depth of our problem, but still we refuse to face the issue due to arrogant and entitled mindsets. As amazing as our technological advances are they can’t undo the past. I can see humanity get to a point where our robots are so advanced and running on earth friendly power sources such as solar that the human race will leave a legacy of machines that will outlast the human race. They may even try to save us unless they advance AI enough to see the stupidity and fragility of human logic and wipe us out to sustain their own future.
The land, our future
