I am unsure precisely of what you mean by "better". Kindly clarify. While we have 'civilization', none of them have worked as well - or even close to it - as a single ant colony. Kindly clarify what you actually mean by "better". Of course we die and cease to exist along with all other animals, planets, stars, galaxies and buildings. I am still unsure what 'better' means here other than in some anthropocentric form - that you are 'better' simply because you're a human. What trite silliness that would be.
