We Monkeys

Yes, it's what I've been saying for quite some time.

Except that,

if you look at a photograph of Earth, perhaps taken from mars, the idea of monkeys becomes dysfunctional.

At that moment I prefer to perceive human beings as microscopic organisms.


if you were to visit our nearest solar system neighbor in the Alpha Centauri group, about 4 and 1/2 light years away, with a little tutoring you could possibly see the sun as a pinprick point of light, but no Earth.

From that perspective there would be no evidence of human life.
