Thanks. I agree with many of your points. Over all, I see nature not as preferential, but as completely neutral. That said, when people project nature is cruel, unfair, or a “bitch” I understand what they mean. When they say nature is magnificent, miraculous and beautiful, that too, is true. I think the binary is over-emphasized, and the daily, wonderful, middle ground is too much ignored.

The egg is a wonder! Still, some people project when they say the female that eats her mate is cruel or sneaky. Same as with those who justify male cheating (or polygamy) as natural. Its origin is natural. It’s containment by thinking persons is key. Honesty between two partners is a definite, and powerful, bond between people. Are people animals? YES! The more we understand our connections to the rest of the biosphere, the more kinship to celebrate.

Thank you so much for your time.
