The central message of this wonderful #book is that humans feel special and apart from animals when they’re also just another animal.

We preach morality and purpose but in reality we live, eat, fuck and die.
Because we’re aware of our mortality, we get attached to the idea of final salvation: moderns want it via infinite progress in science and tech, Christians want it via the second coming of Jesus and spiritualists want it by becoming one with the self.
The treadmill of progress exists only in our minds.

Nature moves on with or without us, and with or without humanity.

We’re special only in our own eyes.

We’re not the masters of the universe but universe is our master.
