The Divine Wisdom of Peace

Source: Wired
According to this article in Wired, some species seem to be 'self-domesticating,' eschewing competition and aggression in favor of cooperation and conciliation. I can't help but be reminded of the scripture:
The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them....The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock...
Perhaps these 'domesticating' forces are indeed an inexorable push towards a Godly peacefulness.
