The human race seems to have a mixture of different aspects, of extreme aggression, of extreme compassion, of the ability to love deeply, but also hate deeply. The amount of energy alone we expend in negative ways (abuse, criticism, treatment of all over lifeforms, torture, destruction), I think would be enough, if channelled and nurtured correctly to fuel the planet and its inhabitants for generations. We're also a race deeply asleep, and operating mostly on auto-pilot, unable to see, feel and experience the naturalness of life. The phenomenon of social media and especially i/e technology has resulted in greater dysfunctionality and disconnectivity from life itself.

Humans are capable of great things--good or bad. So many variable:nature, nurture,choice--ultimately though, I think we decide, within our limited scope, to be as we become.

I think that we are all multifaceted... dark and light.
