I generally agree with you James and what you describe is a far too common perspective. However, I do grant humanity some credit for bringing cosmic creativity along (some of) the path that we have (the very realization you are proposing, for example). I think getting out of our own hubris can certainly be part of the narrative too. Don’t really want to argue with your main point though because I think you are right. Which is my case in point; I believe (a human) can sympathize with the way you feel. And I say that, of course, fully acknowledging that my bacteria and I are fully integral.
