CONTACT LENS: Vibrant Ancestors
21 Jun 2013
We are the physical composite of nearly every biological organism that has and does exist on planet Earth: from the cilium vibrating in our lungs to the hair on our skin; from the ongoing waves of peristalsis snaking deep within to the twitch and flick of muscles flocking around our eyes. Our thoughts and actions are the composite of every struggle and demise of nearly every biological organism that has and does exist on planet Earth, each and every strategy failed and awarded, whether of protista, fungus, earthworm or blue whale. Why then should anyone take offense when science illuminates our connection with all these vibrant ancestors with whom we were and are? I celebrate this connection today, and honor my micro and macro brethren.
