There’s a scene in The Avengers where The Hulk beats down the demi-God, Loki, and as he walks away he murmurs, “puny God.”
That’s how I felt about us humans when I read this article on Japan unveiling it’s largest warship since WWII.
In our world this is normal, and moreso, something for a nation to be proud of, but when you step back it’s funny how pathetic all this is.
We’ve come so far yet look how un-evolved we are. When we were apes roaming the trees fighting over food it was one thing, but now look at us, all the intelligence of the world, yet we’re still seeking out better ways to kill each other.
In this infinite universe we are ants fighting over a piece of dirt. We’ve got so little perspective on existence that we still haven’t overcome our most basic programming to fight over territory and to seek bigger and better war machines as the natural evolution to beating our hairy fists on our hairy chests.
For centuries the world’s greatest thinkers have talked about enlightenment, presumably hoping it would catch on. Clearly it hasn’t. Will it ever?
Or are us puny humans simply destined to go extinct while fighting over dirt?
