Mankind's problem behavior is culturally and socially conditioned, which in biological light makes man the most destructive species that has ever existed. Today's natural resources and the world as it is today are the result of earlier plants and animal species. I take a closer look at parallel processes of change in science and play with the idea of man as an early stage of becoming a mineral.
Our perspective is similar to an ant's perception of reality. Man's experience of being large enough (I. Hagerup) and superior to all other species, but without the ability to see the whole.
“But I know what darkness is, it accumulates, thickens, then suddenly bursts and drowns everything.”
- Samuel Beckett.
