Only if they have hornets, of course....
Wasn't there some talk here, even perhaps from the missing Robin, about
how to make a 10K year clock? Some parallel there. What _is_ dangerous,
not only across time, but, perhaps, speaking about such a span of
temporal displacement, intelligent species?
If we all become cyborgs, hornets won't concern us. Radiation might even
be necessary to some life. Stuff of science-fiction. H.G. postulated a
far future devoid of human life, with a cool red sun and strange crabs
So, what's dangerous, even now, across all cultures on this isolated and
alone little orb?
Is there any one symbol that would work?
How about Munch's scream?
The photo of that vietmanese girl fleeing?
