Why care?

Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell reported experiencing an “Overview Effect”… He became profoundly aware that each and every atom in the Universe was connected in some way, and on seeing Earth from space he had an understanding that all the humans, animals and systems were a part of the same thing, a synergistic whole.

  1. From the Twitter account (@ProfFeynman) set up in honour of Richard Feynman, and featuring tweets made from his quotes:

    “Here I stand, atoms with consciousness, matter with curiosity. A universe of atoms, an atom in the universe.”

    “If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this universe, into parts — physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on — remember that nature does not know it!”

    It seems that he and Edgar Mitchell agreed on synergistic wholes.
