Trees are the ultimate nihilists. They
recognize reality and their powerlessness in it. They see no point in
bloviation, neurosis, dualistic religion or morality. They simply grow
toward the sunlight and do the best they can. When death comes, they
accept it. For all we know, they are more intelligent than us. They are
spiritually perfect beings that recycle carbon dioxide into oxygen,
enrich the soil, provide food and shelter to many species, and basically
keep giving and ask nothing in return. Do I worship trees? Yes, yes I definitely do.
