Mankind is a virus

I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here.  It came to me when I tried to classify your species, and I realized that humans are not actually mammals.  Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment; but you humans do not.  Instead you multiply, and multiply, until every resource is consumed.  The only way for you to survive is to spread to another area.  There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern… a virus.  Human beings are a disease, a cancer on this planet, you are a plague, and we… are the cure.
