Everything we think of, is afforded to us because we are human and we have spent a lot of time, from a human perspective, convincing ourselves what reality is. And it is much, much different for other creatures. Ants are more abundant than humans, have been around much longer, and have no concept of Earth's curvature or Earth itself. We had to give this place a name, and create a story about how it works, but ants don't have to do that.

When all the humans are gone and the ants are still here, do you think they'll tell their children about those strange humans who were always so delusional about what they think they know, to the point that they eradicated themselves over their beliefs? While the ant scurries along, surviving, enjoying life on this planet they call " ".
