“Why would we want to bring back extinct animals?” (Quora)
Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Why would we want to bring back extinct animals?“
I received this question from my student who mentioned a project of a company that is working to bring back the dodo—a large flightless bird that became extinct about 350 years ago—with the help of gene editing. The bird had lived for millions of years in the forests of Mauritius, close to the coasts of Africa, and according to scientists, the process will be completed in six years and the extinct animal will return to the forests of Mauritius.
I answered him that it is forbidden for us to intervene with nature, because nature is smarter and revives what it wishes back to life.
We only need to reach balance among each other, that we will not fight each other, but rather live like any other species that has its rightful place in nature.
If we manage to reach balance among each other at the human level, then our balance will positively influence the entire system of nature on its still, vegetative and animate levels as well, because we are the species with the greatest amount of influence in nature.
Just from achieving balanced human connection, we might very well see the dodo or other species come back to life, simply due to nature’s will. This is because nothing disappears in nature. If a certain species had existed, it means that its information exists in nature, and when we organize our relations in a way that makes room for everyone in nature’s general system, then all parts of nature will gradually return to their place.
