Be Humble

Dinosaurs were evolutionary dynamos who dominated the planet. Humans are a cunning bunch of primates who learned to adapt environments to fit their needs, rather than the other way around. But you know what? At the end of the day, we're all just bags of meat and water. There's nothing like the reality check that comes with contemplating deep space and time, and recognizing how tenuous this whole "existence" thing really is. There were great lifeforms before us and will be again after us. A daily pill of humility is definitely recommended for life in this universe.
