If life everywhere is as cheap as it has been on Earth, if Living Planets are a dime a dozen and Sentient Worlds are as common as cows, so what if we blow ourselves to hell? Who is going to give a fuck? But right now the only guarantee is that there is only one... what if wet rocks like Earth ARE rare. What if we're unique? Are you proud of Yourself? Your Kin Folk? Your Religion? How about Religious History?Your Race? Your Nation? Your Species? Your History? What if life IS cheap and Living Planets litter the cosmos like plankton bobbing on a warm ocean and Sentient Worlds are as common as boners in high school? Does that change what you want for your spawn? "What will you have them to say about you in 1,000 years, Cesar, that you were a slayer of men and a winner of contests, or a builder of playgrounds, safety for the children of your children?"
