1. By and large, the world is kept in balance by its diversity. The strength of this diversity is that not all varieties of a crop get destroyed, and not all of a population succumbs to a particular illness. In general, this natural richness also provides access to cures for the ills that it throws up.
2. Values of diversity, whether biological, cultural or lingustic, are intrinsic to life itself and celebrated by the myriad cultures and societies that have co-evolved with the natural and metaphysical worlds that surround them. Human beings are an integral part of biodiversity.
