I don’t remember if I posted for last week, so you’re getting a slightly longer snippet this time.
“Remember how energy never dies? Well, all living creatures give off energy, and there’s always death. Every second, someone or something dies, and when it dies, the energy has to go somewhere.“
“What does that have to do with the planet being able to feel?”
“Ashes to ash, dust to dust.” Kerry said quietly. “We were born from the Earth; it only makes sense that we return to it, does it not?”
“I guess so, but that still doesn’t explain why the planet feels stuff.”
Kerry pulled her legs up so she could rest her chin on her knees. “It’s an old, old rock.” She reminded Heather. “The best guess so far puts the age at almost five billion years old. It didn’t take nearly that long for the creatures on the planet to learn to actually think, you know.”
