THEN I was thinking—-does a flower CARE who is there to smell it and appreciate it’s beauty to bloom? Of course not! Nature is not dependent on an audience for it to express itself fully…..humans and human egos, free will and language are what differentiates our behavior from that which we are a part of. We are the only ones that CARE there is an audience, thrive on it, depend on it, get our self worth from it…..BUT we also learn from it, grow from it, question from it, ponder, change, adjust, destroy, create. We are not the thinkers—we are the thinking.
