Polite reminder: Earth is a tree planet with some bacteria. Everything else is just the extra stuff that lives here too.


@InvaderXan this is such a wonderful illustration, thank you. I hadn't realised the scale! 😮

I am reminded of how individual humans are an ecosystem on a much smaller scale, but we couldn't survive without say, our gut bacteria.

Let's not kill our host organism.

@vicorva It's pretty interesting to realise where we fit, don't you think?

Ultimately, I'm not sure humans are even capable of killing out host organism. We are, however, quite capable of being a danger to ourselves...

@InvaderXan 😓 terrifying thought when you consider how thoroughly we've hurt ourselves already

@InvaderXan @vicorva not for the lack of trying though. 😅 😂 🤣
