|Something somewhere went terribly wrong!|
In medieval times the nobility had large hunting reserves set aside for them. No one else could use the land or build on it. This policy had the unexpected benefit of preserving these green spaces throughout England and Europe for us today. This is good.
However, an unexpected drawback happened when rabbits were first brought to Australia and New Zealand for food. The rabbit population grew so large that it became a major uncontrollable pest.
We are all bound to each other in a million ways. The food we eat is really just Earth, Water and Sun mixed for us by the plants that grow here. Think about that! Everything that lives on this planet - animal or plant - is related. We are all siblings descended from that first dividing cell. Therefore, what happens in one place, will have consequences in another.

All of this leads us to the most profound law of all: Sturgeon's Law –which states that
"The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood,
the carbon in our apple pies, were all made in the interiors of collapsing stars.
We are made of starstuff.” Carl Sagan
