This is my first post, so sorry if this is in the wrong section. I just came across an article which stated "At any time, it is estimated that there are some 10 quintillion (10,000,000,000,000,000,000) individual insects alive." Now, this got me thinking about the number of humans on Earth vs all other living creatures. Lets say for arguments sake that humans are outnumbered by non human organisms by (say) 1 quadrillion to 1. Does this imply that I was extraordinarily lucky to be born a human, rather than an insect or bird and so on....? Surely I could have been born as anything on this planet, but by chance I was born a human......... Was this just some coincidence whereby I defied the unfathomable odds, or is there more to it?
