I just watched a nature documentary.

I just watched a nature documentary.
Every so often I flip channels and end up on nature shows. The older I get  the more appreciative I become of nature.

So tonight, I am watching a PBS  documentary called "Big Pacific". And in it it shows a video of an eel stalking and eating a crab.

What frustrates me about my fellow humans is that we cant see ourselves as being life. We are, fortunately and unfortunately. 

Humans stupidly see ourselves as an apex, and we are not. While we can problem solve, we still are tribal and still fight each other. We still need food and shelter too.

Well, humans are apex predators, depending on their particular ecosystem (the term is somewhat variable).

Why do you think fighting each other and needing food/shelter disqualifies us from being apex predators?
