Finely writen and very interesting piece, Mike. BUT, until nature gives up it's balancing law of in time always offsetting creation with destruction and discontinues hardwiring humans with a negative tribal impulse, cycles of creation and destruction will only go on until some ultimate, as far as humanity is concerned, destructive offset comes along.

We have zero control of the game — just pushed about within nature’s random yet very precise formate.
