The universe in its inexorable power and mystery is inexhaustible. All is alive and full of intent. The particle of dust which is you is only a point of consciousness in relation to infinity. It’s arrogance to think you can do anything to the vastness. Yet, you are part of that vastness, pulled away only momentarily to wonder and exercise your intent.
There is nothing without intent and consciousness. The universe is built from intent. The idea that only humans are intelligent is the result of ignorance and confusion. Intelligence was here first, before the humans arrived.
