We humans are convinced that we belong to the best, the most developed and complex of all living species. It is inconceivable for us to imagine that a worm, a fungus, or a fern could be better than us even though, in terms of survival as a species, our chances are rather modest. So, if we die out tomorrow, who will care whether we have written The Divine Comedy or Don Quixote?
