Not to be too much of a buzzkill, but the Universe doesn’t care.
It doesn’t care about Russia invading Ukraine.
It doesn’t care about Putin masterminding Brexit to divide Great Britain or corrupting the American elections to get the Mango Mussolini into the White House.
It doesn’t care about COVID, or the evil forces manipulating the system to make a significant slice of the population anti-science and stupid.
It just doesn’t care.
Yesterday there was NOTHING but bare branches on this tree. Today, it’s got a dozen of these gorgeous pink flowers sprouting. Not sure if the Universe actually cares about this or not, but it’s what the Universe is doing every day and actions speak louder than words.
The Universe is going to move on its merry way, with or without us. If every human being on the planet woke up dead tomorrow morning, this tree would still be exploding with spring flowers.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing at all. But it tells me that the only ones who will EVER give a shit about us is … us. Not the Universe. Not any invisible old dude in the sky.
Nope. It’s just us and only us.
So we had better get our shit together and do a better job about caring about us, ALL OF US, or the Universe will be short one human race in its entirety.
And it still won’t care.
