Imagine we were planted here by an alien race who wanted us to look after our planet. Would we have obligations to the aliens who planted us here? Would it be a good thing if we thought we were planted here by aliens even if it is not true? Would we take our duty to the planet more seriously? Do we have such a duty at all? If we had to draw up a report for the aliens what would we put in it?
If there is a chance that we were not planted here by aliens should we make a ‘declaration of rights for all living creatures’? Or a declaration of our duties to the planet itself? Would that keep us on the job?
Or do you think we can consume everything and hop to the next planet?
