View Full Version : Could This Be Our Future?

I once saw a time-lapse video of an orange decaying and related it to a time-lapse of the world with the fungal
threads being us sucking out the irreplaceable resources of the planet.

I couldn't find the film with the orange but the one below with Strawberries may give you some idea.

Nah. The analogy (strawberry = earth) is way too disproportionate. The effects of the entire amount of all life on Earth might equal the effects of a single microbe on the strawberry. Besides, we aren't sucking resources from the "Earth." We are sucking life from ourselves (life eats life). When we're all dried up, and have reduced life to simpler substances, the Earth will still be spinning indifferently.

All things are replaceable, aren't they? Just not always in the same form.
