Vreau sa explorez modul in care am fost creati de Pamant. Fiecare dintre noi este facut la propriu din Pamant, ca toate formele de viata de pe planeta. Apa din corpul tau s-a revarsat odinioara in Nil, s-a transformat in ploaie musonica si a cazut asupra Indiei, apoi a facut vartejuri in Pacific. Carbonul din moleculele celulelor tale a fost extras din atmosfera de plantele pe care le consumi. Sarea din lacrimile si transpiratia ta, calciul din oasele tale, fierul din sangele tau, toate au fost produse din rocile din scoarta Pamantului, iar sulful din moleculele proteice ale parului si muschilor tai s-a revarsat din vulcani. Pamantul ne-a daruit si materia prima pe care am extras-o, am prelucrat-o si am transformat-o in uneltele si in tehnologiile noastre, de la topoarele de mana din Epoca Pietrei la computerele de azi. Lewis Dartnel
