The Day's Philosophical Question
Would it be better if the cockroaches took over from humans?
I'm not sure. If I was a cockroach I'd know what their sense of humor is. I like humor, and I fear that I wouldn't get the cockroach jokes. They'd be all about silly humans suddenly bursting out of the woodwork, all saying that it wasn't their fault. Whatever the "it" might be. I also am too large to find lovers among the cockroaches unless they agree to collaborate.
On the other hand, it wouldn't be that difficult to overperform the humans. Not that difficult, at all. But then there are the beautiful works of human art and the acts of kindness and the sudden lightning strokes of understanding and feeling...the universe. Can cockroaches do that?
