We Are Wild

the bony skull of a fish against a dark background

I have seen and read a lot in my life. And what I have learned is simple. We speak too much. We act with little forethought, cooperation, or purpose. We augment and invent without considering the implications–without fully understanding. We are wild, we human beings. We are as wild as it gets. Wilder than the most savage beast of the deepest undiscovered jungles, wilder and stranger than the deep-sea creatures. We are more volatile than exploding stars. More terrible, even, than the awful myths of our own creation.
