The Earth is a dynamic, changing planet, capable of supporting life, and adjusting regularly to its inhabitants. The Earth is synonomous with our "Digital Natives," they were born into this world that changes rapidly, whether from human interaction or just because she is Mother Earth.
Other inhabitants, non-"Digital Natives" run the risk of becoming cold, stagnant, and unchanging like our Moon. It has never supported life, the surface is covered by scars that were caused by events that it could not defend against (unlike our Mother Earth, which has an atmosphere, the Moon is unprotected). The non-"Digital Natives" of the Moon are also slowly orbiting further and further away from Mother Earth.
It's time for the Moon to catch up with Mother Earth... and time for the non-Natives to catch up with the Natives.
