We know about past ages, about the creation of the universe, and about the stories of each star, not because we actually know them intellectually, but rather because we are a unified part of all these things. We form the “skin” of the earth as individuals and as members of the human race. The paradox of our fused identity with “all People” is that we are all alike. We share common physical characteristics, but more importantly we all dream in the same way; we all remember in the same way. This sense of identity that makes us an inseparable part of humanity and the universe.
