”In the vision of the dream I once imagined myself searching for other civilizations in the cosmos. Among a hundred billion galaxies and a billion trillion stars, life and intelligence should have arisen in many worlds; some worlds are barren and desolate. On them life never began or may have been extinguished in some cosmic catastrophe. There may be worlds rich in life not yet evolved to intelligence and high technology; there may be civilizations that achieved technology and then promptly used it to destroy themselves; and, perhaps, there are also beings who learn to live with their technology and themselves, beings who endure and become citizens of the cosmos. ”

“Our loyalties are to the species and the planet. We speak for Earth. Our obligation to survive is owed not just to ourselves but also to that Cosmos, ancient and vast, from which we spring.” – C Sagan

Walking.

Good way to Tune In.

Grateful awareness.

The Earth seems beneath your feet.

Can you sens it?

Do you ever think how fantastq it is to walk upon the same Earth?

Step by step, many rhythms.

Different cultures, many directions of thought.

Vibes and connections.

Spaceship through vastness.

One.

Giant.

Gaia
