The Synergies of Life

I’m not much of a Deep Ecologist, but I found this quote profound from the perspective of the interconnectedness of all life:

“When you go around the Earth in an hour and a half, you begin to recognize that your identity is with that whole thing. That makes a change…it comes through to you so powerfully that you’re the sensing element for Man.” Schweikart, similar to what Mitchell experienced, describes intuitively sensing that everything is profoundly connected.

The quote is from a January 2010 article in The Daily Galaxy about spaceflight changing the human brain. The whole article is interesting, but it’s the first three paragraphs which gave me pause. Read it for yourself.
