ALL HUMANS ON EARTH ARE ONE
All humans on earth are one. We descend from the same family of common ancestors.
We are, in a quite literal sense, siblings, and like siblings we depend on each other’s love and care and responsibility.
We are interdependent not just in our families and communities,
but in nations, and increasingly on a global scale – just as we are also interdependent with nature, with earth and the universe”.
So, different souls and cultures but one earth,
so, different stars but one universe.alexis karpouzos

i’m looking for the face i had before the world was made. I was the primordial flaring forth, the gravitational waves, the whirling galaxies, and the exploding supernovas that would become stars and planets. I was the steaming planet Earth, the bacteria awash in the sea, and the early eukaryotes and multicellular animals. I exploded in the Cambrian explosion, stumbled onto land, walked with dinosaurs, saw trees and flowers appear, walked upright in Africa, and walked on the moon. I felt the embrace of gravity. I was one with all that had been and all that was to be. I experienced subjective mystical communion with the evolutionary, emergent universe. I was the universe. We know not where the journey leads, nor whether a final destination is even a meaningful concept. The attraction is the inherent thrill of participating in a grand creative endeavor for which participation is its own reward.
