17. Humans are lazy, myself included.

It's a shame that we spend so much time in life acquiring things to wear or put in our mouths. I wish our species had as much of a thirst for knowledge as they do designer clothes and fattening food and good-looking sex partners. Knowledge is the only thing that will lift us up out of this mire we're in, and we can never run out of it. There are so many places we could go if we would learn and cooperate with each other. Like I say, if our descendants ever get out of this hole and truly grow in knowledge, those descendants will probably have evolved into another species already. I don't hold out a lot of hope for this species as things stand now. I can try to do my part to make things better, but if I were playing our odds in a casino, I wouldn't bet on us.
