God, Man, and Aliens

I have a fish tank.

Within live many curious species of creature of unfathomable variety. From the micro to the macroscopic, and from the bottom of the food chain to the top the entirety of their cyclical lives take place within the tank.

I observe the tank from without and from above. My higher level of consciousness affords me this privileged perspective.

The variety is wonderous to me. It is wonderous because I am not afraid of the creatures living within. If I were afraid of the creatures they would not be wonderous, they would be strange.
