This pre-dictum, prologue in 21st century language, should be a stimulus to change customs, objectives and ethics of our current civilization, in which everything is allowed …. just for a few people: quod licet Jovi, non licet bovi. During its existence, planet Earth has been subjected to enormous catastrophes, such as those caused by an impact of an extremely large meteorite or an explosion of a super volcano; after those events, the planet has survived but most of the species become extinct. Those who survived, mutated, proliferated, and created an de novo rich biodiversity, with species adapted to the new existing conditions. Apparently, we are heading the same way again - history repeats itself - an invasive species, Homo sapiens, that is ourselves, human humanum lupus est, we have destroyed numerous ecosystems, we have contaminated water, soils and air with toxic substances, and we have emitted “greenhouse” gases, which are causing warming of the atmosphere and the subsequent climate change [1]. Under these conditions, numerous animal and plant species have already been extinct, and the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events increased, many of them becoming catastrophic. The world of science warns us that we are facing a sixth mass extinction of species on earth, even suggesting us a change of era, that we are already living the Anthropocene.
