Gaianism versus Cosmism


Man is part of a super organism (Gaia)

Death is part of the life cycle 

Save the Planet

Rationality (Enlightenment ideal) 

Science as a threat to Nature

Man is the most evolved organism 


Life is a formative element of the cosmos

Immorality through technology

Spread joy through the Universe

Self-determination (Enlightenment ideal)

Science assisting in the realization of the brotherhood of all humankind.

Man shares the Galaxy with more advanced civilizations
