From the most minuscule atomic particle to the grandest galaxies, the past, the present, and the future of every animate and inanimate being in our universe is defined by its connection to everything else. We humans are composed of matter that originated with the stars. We share these basic atomic materials and Nature's energy with every rock and bird and fish and grizzly bear that we see. We are equal partners with everything in the universe. Human consciousness of Nature and the conservation of Her interconnections is essential for healthy ecosystems on this planet.
