I once watched a video reenactment of two gnats fighting over who should have the last piece of a dead tardigrade. That was pretty interesting. You know how difficult it is to off a tardigrade.

More to the point, if humans went extinct and left the planet to the gnats and tardigrades, there'd be a whole lot less very pointless hand-wringing by amateur economists about how to create a sustainable economy. On the whole, I think this would be a positive outcome of human extinction.

Evolution doesn't tell a story of progress. There's a wall of low complexity at one end, so everything that comes after that starts to look pretty complex.

Nature: red in tooth and claw. But hoomans is speshul. tey haz duh sawus. it is speshul.
