For years, I had and still have this strange feeling of dissapointment about our own human specie; and actually felling shameful about our collective actions. I had two mind-opening moments in my life, regarding this issue: one being at the top of a mountain, one being at the top of a human-made concrete building, in a big city. My thoughts when being at the top of the mountain were pure admiration; and I clearly remember my first thought when I was at the top of the building: "What have we done....", was a very, very sad and profund feeling. From politics, to machiavellian economy systems, to our insatiable appetite for having and devouring everything, the false "happiness" most people are experiencing, the completely lack of respect for Nature... the list seems to go without an end. But every time, I am into nature and see an old tree, a beautiful animal, the sound of a river.... it simply completes me.... my soul seems to trigger this thinking of "this is what I am". What a perfected gift was given to us... and, the same way a virus behaves, we keep reproducing ourselves without control, damaging our own natural environment, and without seeing it, helping in our own extinction in the future: no other specie have developed such a self-destroying pattern like humans did. My thinkings about it went very profund, and lead me to the conclusion that we are the most sophisticated and intelligent form of a virus on Earth. We were not like that in ancient times, it is just that we have evolved into that. And exactly as a virus behaves, we keep looking for other places to depredate, which today we call expo-planets. One day, I discovered that my thoughts were in concordance with a school of ancient philosophy called "Cynicism": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cynicism_(philosophy) Perhaps my idealism about how we should live is too much for current times, and I am here at the risk of sounding quite childish for many people. I have never met someone in person who shared this way of thinking with me, so I just want to know your thoughts/opinions about it.
