There are two important words in this title: natural and nudity. For hundreds of years now, human beings have tamed nature. It has transformed forests into crops, destroying the habitat of many indigenous species. It has pumped gas and released carbon into the atmosphere. It has grown wild animals into domestic ones. But nature rebelled: global warming, food poisoning, and increased inequality.
Stopping and Reflecting
At the same time, we are told the world is better than ever. Better than the last thousands of years we have an archive on, with increased education, healthcare and peace. And yes, there are many reasons to be optimistic and hopeful. We will continue to tame nature, but in a better, more respectful way. We will continue to protect animals, plants and overall our beautiful planet, because there’s no plan B, despite efforts by many to conquer Mars or other planets.
Even if we were in a position, in many years, to go and colonize other planets, most human beings will have to stay on planet Earth. So, we have no other choices but to collaborate and protect our speck of sand in the vast universe.
