Humans are used to being observers. Looking at whatever we want, with impunity, as we are at the top of the food chain.
So, it’s good to find out how the earth watches us.
Unsurprisingly, it is by the flying eyes and megaphone that are the true top of the food chain. Every magpie is a neutron in a vast, thinking mind mapped across the land, watching us wherever we go.
And eating the dead.
As the ultimate watchers, they abhor being watched themselves. Perhaps it’s to be gentle on us. I’m glad someone has their eye on us.
