Etch A Sketch artist, in the beginning: George Vlosich III

Throughout my one-year-younger-than-Etch-A-Sketch life, my perceptions of the Earth we live on have changed from a native-born sense of permanence - that my home planet will always be here and the same for all people, forever - to a learned understanding of evolution - recognizing Earth is changing, in natural ways - to a self-taught recognition of ecological devastation - realizing man is harming Earth at an unprecedented pace, beyond all past change-models - to a feared concern Earth is like an Etch-a-Sketch, designed to erase all invasive marks upon it in a sudden cleansing, leaving a fresh canvas, without significant remnants of past artists and their creations.

Man is as insignificant as dinosaurs, in such a mechanical environment, ultimately designed to be created-upon, erased, and redrawn over all time.

What determines when the current evolution of art and artists is through, and the final state of creation has been realized, and it is time for Earth to wipe the slate clean?

How much climate change is required to cause eruption of how few volcanoes necessary to end life on Earth, as we know it?

Are comet-storms how planets are wiped clean?

Question of the Day: Is Planet Earth like an Etch-a-Sketch, and are there ways to make the art of our times permanent?

The Etch-A-Sketch theory has strong representation in Ohio, as Etch-A-Sketch is a product of Ohio Art, and one of the world's greatest Etch-A-Sketch artists lives here - George Vlosich III, featured with this posting and on his website here:(note, he designs cool Cleve-theme t-shirts, etc., as well...)
