I thought a lot about my plants just now. We put plants inside our houses and try to control their universe. We add the sunlight. We add the rain. We add the CO2. We are playing God. The plants don't have a say in it. They just grow and grow, or die if you are really bad at playing God.
And Sadly, this is what we do with pets--what I will do with pet's I'm sure.
And some people with tiier kids. Trying to control the universe and shit.
