I've thought a lot about the Gaia hypothesis, both while sober and while high. Basically, in a human body, you have a dermatological system, a food digestion system, a respiratory system, a circulatory system, and a nervous system. The Earth is similar to that in many ways, with a little stretch of the imagination. The dermatological system, aka the "skin", of the Earth, is constantly keeping itself in check through plate tectonics, volcanos, and other methods of recycling the molten core from inside the earth with the solid rock from the surface. The digestion system is the food web itself, where each species keeps the others in check, recycling the waste back into the system. The respiratory system is made up of all the plants on earth, plus all the animals breathing, keeping carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in check. The circulatory system is made up of all the animals on earth, moving around and circulating to keep plants growing and maintain the balance. The nervous system, the "brains" of the operation, is made up of humans. If we assume this as our role, then our purpose on earth is to maintain the balance, and step in and fix places where the balance is out of whack. But because we've repopulated so much, we are sucking nutrients from other aspects of the body, essentially starving the body in order to keep the brain alive. We are brain "cancer", in the sense that we are replicating out of control and throwing the natural body chemistry out of whack.
What do you think, am I just crazy or does that kind of make sense?
>tl;dr fuck you go back and read that and open your mind.
