    Slight derail, but I always liked that scene in Waterloo where the British soldier leaves his ranks and is screaming at everyone, "Stop killing each other! Why are we killing each other?"
    Not a derail. Nicely embodies what I said.

    Science tries to determine if chimps are aware. The question is if we are aware of what we are doing.

    Maybe we are so focused on our own interests, goals, objectives, family, social status, tribe, nation, state, etc, that the big picture becomes fuzzy and seemingly unimportant.....''there is nothing we can do about it'' - even while we contribute our activity in building and maintaining the World at Large.

    Lppking back, myself included, over time we loose awareness to routine and habit. How many Americans are aware on what O2 comes from and what happens if plankton dies off? Trump is emblematic, educated and sucesful but apparently nor aware of circumstances of existense, how we got to this point of afluence, and on what our physical existenxcce depemds.
