WordPress theme has been built! It’s already usable, but far from polished, and still needs a good optimization kick.
But that isn’t what I want to talk about right now. Earlier today I had an amazing realization. Our lives are relatively super significant, compared to animals, bugs, et cetera. Sure they, as a group, play a large role in the health of the natural eco system. But you? Oh man, if you don’t bum around all day chances are you’re a small cog in the large machine called society. But that small cog has influence, it is significant! Just because it seems like you’re super small in the bigger picture doesn’t mean you don’t play a role.
Isn’t that great? Humans have grown, evolved to have such a big presence on the planet. We build, maintain, destroy, document. We live with purpose. For comparison, let’s take a look at cats. It’s not like cats can dedicate the entirety of their nine lives to improving the kitty community or something. Sounds cute, but it ain’t happening! We humans, on the other hand, can actively make a difference. Not to talk down on our animal friends, they’re really cool and all, but they just don’t have the mental and physical reach we do.
You could argue that by being our pets, they’re also playing a role in our society system. And I wouldn’t necessarily say you’re wrong. Still, those who take action are way more significant that those who play a minor assisting role in the action taker’s life, right?
But man oh man, WordPress sure is hard.
