Collective karma--I don't know. Is it anything like saying that humans are just another one of the natural disasters? I guess I think that, though I know it sounds fatalistic. But what if humanity, just as invividual human life (along with all the other extinctions), has an end? And we participate in that, just as we do our own individual deaths. For some reason that's not a depressing thought; instead it's rather bracing.
