Model for Extinction Survival: Take to the Sky
Most current crises, the climate crisis, the virus pandemic, come down to the fear of addressing questions of death, extinction and annihilation. The story of dromaeosaurs tries to restore hope in searching for a future. Growing feathers had an entirely different purpose in early dinosaurs. Arguably, however, the ability to fly later allowed a few families of dinosaurs to survive the extinction event, and to further evolve into birds. We, humans also do not have access to the big picture of our stories, while the end seems inevitable. The dinosaur parallel shows a path. Instead of being concerned with constant maintenance, the available systems, technology, resources need to be hacked, "misused" in radical, imaginative ways. We inevitably must look at ourselves as part of greater evolutionary processes.
