Inspired by Earth

Question of the Day, September 17, 2011 What Inspires you about Mother Earth?

What inspires you about Gaia (Mother Earth)?

What inspires me is the systems we see on this planet, and the life that we see as a result of the interplay.

There is so much, that is so unlikely, yet here it is.

Life has so many different levels to it.
So amazing that the process of evolution by natural selection can give rise to successive levels of competition and cooperation.

It seems that the really big advances in options available to life are a result of new levels of cooperation, creating whole new levels of possibility.

I am cautiously optimistic that humanity as a whole will come to the awareness that we will all benefit from new levels of cooperation, and the nightmare that is the unconstrained greed and exploitation demonstrated by major financial institutions will come to an end.

So – I am inspired by the cooperation that can evolve from lower levels of competition, and the potential for infinite creativity and love that can result.
