Humans vs. Everything else

I thought Friday's discussion about humans having the power to destroy all living organisms was interesting. As we noted in class, this would be impossible simply because humans are dependent on all other life to live themselves. The relationship ebtween humans and other organisms is interedependency with both needed one anotehr to survive. The realization although obvious, is a bit profound for me and it draw backs to some of the themes that we spoke of in previous weeks. Nothing in this world is independent of one another and all these organisms need each other to live, even the "great and mighty" humans. This reminds me of the discussion we had concerning evolution and how aspects of current life stem from  other previous and ancient aspects of living organisms.
