What is life?
What is the drive in life?
Humans complicate everything so much so as to blur the simple and elegant reason that life and human life exists as it is and we are.
Life is the search for a point to view from. The place we feel the need to view from is ingrained in us by our histories. Everything we think is an attempt to justify our reason for assuming our point to view from. Every mutation from the single simple cells of archaea to our human bodies is an attempt to enhance the ability to achieve the point to view from and a point of view is our premise for getting there, wherever there might be. This is true of all animals, whatever their function or form. Humans have to dress it in all kinds of costumes and camouflage, but the searching for a point to view from is ingrained in all things animated.
Human domestication was and is a pact, an insurance policy. First for ourselves, and then wolves, and other lifeforms that if you stick with us your ability for yourselves and future generations of viewers from your kind will be assured the better places to view from. It has worked well. Beyond all expectation, I might add.
