In the 30 years since the evacuation of Chernobyl, the wild has reclaimed the space. Today, the forest has taken over the city that are very rare elsewhere. Powerful evidence that however grave our mistakes, nature will ultimately overcome them. The living world will endure. We humans cannot presume the same. We've come this far because we are the smartest creatures.

But to continue, we require more than intelligence. We require wisdom. There are many differences between humans and the rest of the species on earth, but one that has been expressed is that we alone are able to imagine the future.
