Gaianism versus Cosmism



Gaianism 

Determinism
 
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 




Cosmism 
  
Libertarianism

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
