You are comprised of 84 minerals, 23 Elements, and 8 gallons of water, spread across 38 trillion cells. You have been built up from nothing by the spare parts of the Earth you have consumed, according to a set of instructions hidden in a double helix and small enough to be carried by a sperm. You are recycled butterflies, plants, rocks, streams, firewood, wolf fur, and shark teeth, broken down to their smallest parts and rebuilt into our planet’s most complex living thing. You are not living on Earth. You are Earth. (Aubrey Marcus)
Thank you to my dear friend Lea Earnheart for this quote.
