So that’s cheery news. Just so happens that I am reading this book now:
So, the last branch of modern humans, ie us, shot to the top of the food chain so fast that the ecosystems we have spread into have suffered quite a bit. Harari states that sharks and lions took quite some time to earn their spots on the top shelf, allowing their ecosystems to adjust and set in some checks and balances.
Homo Sapiens, the last of the modern homos, have come out of nowhere and in the last 12,000 years grabbed the global top spot. In doing so, ecosystems have reacted adversely to say the least.
So, I planted a flower in a hollow log. S’all good.
