Philosophy Wire: Oxygen as poison. Life as an accident.

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2018-01-03]: Oxygen makes up 21% of the Earth’s atmosphere and we need it to breathe. But early organisms would have found this environment toxic. Ancient bacteria evolved protective enzymes that prevented oxygen from damaging their DNA. [1]

Our whole theories are so anthropocentric…
Even the materialistic ones…
We are not something special.
We are the poison of the world.

The destroyers of life.
Let go.
Die.

And a flower will blossom…
