That's a theory, but it seems to me to be more of a religion. You can
believe it or not, it's your choice. But there are no evidences of
something like, say, Gaia.
For myself, I choose to be more in the humanistic/renaissance mood and
think that we, humans, occupy a place a bit higher in the global
hierarchy, compared to whales or dolphins. We wear clothes. For the good
and the bad. And we change the system in such a way that other living
species have either to adapt to it or die. No other living element of
the system does that, at least not as fast as we do.
I'm not expressing judgement on this, just expose it as a fact. There
are good and bad results out of it. Pollution and extintion and war are
nothing to be proud of. Jorge Luis Borges is.
