Could the underlying reason behind this be the belief that human life is the most precious? Why is it our goal to leave a mark on the world? Leaving a mark shouldn't be more important than being mortal. In our lives that last less than the blink of the universe, we try to ascend by crushing the cycle of nature in the name of success. If this is what success is, we've already won, but I don't feel successful at all.
We need to question the consequences of our next steps with a much more holistic view, and not just for specific groups like ourselves, our environment, or our culture.
