What will become of us?

As clever, adolescent monkeys climbing the tree of universal knowledge, passing the baton, accelerating at an ever increasing rate, fighting for dominance, power and control over our world, over each other, in the bigger picture that spans time beyond scales we can hardly imagine, or even care to consider, what will happen as we strive to reach the top?

Will we even survive the climb?

I believe it's within us, but how will we choose?

What can be done to better aim our focus?

Will this be enough?
