Focus on Connections

Alive Inside

What is more important people or relationships? Species or evolution? Planets or gravity? Neurones or synapses?

In an attempt to understand the world or provide answers we are constantly classifying things. We define people based on nationality, race or religion. We have identified over 2 million species of plants, animals and microbes. The body is studied largely as separate organs. Matter can be divided into planets, stars, atoms, protons, neutrons, electrons etc.

Yet everything is connected through forces, actions, consequences, relationships and experiences. Imagine a world where we focused on the connections between everything in the universe rather than dividing and classifying.

How would this impact racism, terrorism, inequality, science medicine and the environment?
