It may occur to you why anyone would write such an article? Well, it’s just as well. When one is bored and broke, and gets an opportunity to be paid for writing whatever comes to its path. But of course all that is only a dream! One remains broke, and bored, and life goes on.
If humans had come to this world out of mere chance from another planet, if there were no means by which they could identify with or interact with the earthly flora and fauna, it might have been boring for them to chase around the wildlife – be it with cameras or guns. As it turns out, this is not the case. Not only humans are not bored with the wildlife, they either invite it partially to their homes, or invite themselves into it to get away from the boredom created by themselves within their own lives. A purpose much deeper than simple decorations, or finding company, or even indulging in adventures might be larking behind this attitude: finding the meaning of life!
Yet, don’t people get bored with wildlife sometimes? After all, the wildlife is not a zoo. To spot an interesting enough animal – say a dolphin in the realm of hundreds of immobile, boring sponges stuck at the bottom of a sea might involve hours of patient waiting, which of course can become tedious like hell. On the other hand, even if you have the opportunity to swim around hundreds of dolphins for days, how long are they going to keep you intrigued? After all, how long do we need to know another species with the aid of the largest brain in the animal kingdom? Aren’t they going to bore us sooner or later? And yet, neither the sponge nor the dolphins seem particularly bored with one another. Well, it is slightly difficult to say if sponges are bored or not since they never do anything anyway, but dolphins – even with their high intelligence – not only have never been known as rolling their beady eyes at the sponges, but sometimes even find a way to make use of them by attaching them to their snout in order to save it from bumping it against the seabed. Now that we know this fact after spending years studying marine life, the boredom that the sponges might evoke in us goes down by a notch. If humans were easily bored with wildlife, such funny facts (not funny for the sponge, in this case) would have remained unknown forever. And a lack of knowledge and understanding of each such little fact leads to another little spoonful of lack of understanding of the meaning of life. Why so?
