I was thinking about the animal world the other day and there are many different ways that animals attack each other.
There are land animals that attack and eat other land animals. There are amphibious animals that eat land animals and/or sea animals, and sea animals that eat other sea animals. However, there are very few birds that attack other birds, and even fewer that attack other birds while in flight.
This strategy, of attacking each another in flight, is a human-born phenomenon. When it comes to thinking of ways to kill each other, humans are capable of going beyond the model that nature has created. We’ve invented all kinds of ways to attack each other: attacks by land, attacks by sea, attacks on the ground from the air, and above all, air-to-air attacks.
Not only are we the kings of nature, we are the kings at thinking of more advanced ways to kill each other.
