The way of the animal world is everything has its place. Those at the top of the food chain have the responsibility of informing all others, including those of their own kind, of where the boundaries to this place are. Many times this is called “marking one’s territory.” We often mock or punish dogs for such behavior but it is simply part of the animal world. Why punish dogs when we as humans do the same thing? It is never difficult to identify where the feet of humanity have walked. Without this simple fact we would not have archaeologists. But I digress. We as humans mark our territory; we leave a footprint for all to see our grandeur. It is in our nature.
A construction site. The beginnings of our mark. The formation of our footprint.
