To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

William Blake

Human beings have two eyes, each consisting of 130 million photoreceptor cells. In each of these cells, there are 100,000,000,000,000 (100 trillion) atoms — which is more than all the stars that exist in the Milky Way.

However, every atom in every cell in each eye was formed in the heart of a star, billions of years ago, and yet, here are today used to capture the energy released by the same process.

The limits of the world are those of knowledge. So far human thought comes to know the nature, it will show you the wonders of the cosmos.

Somehow we are a pale blue pearl in a vast cosmic space, unaware of the world beyond the confines of our home, the Earth.

We are a drop of water in an ocean of time, matter of stars, particles of life in a universe of possibilities. The Infinite begins on the shore and ends in a horizon of possible worlds.

Although from this point of view, it is a sort take human form even for a short time, in this paradise of nature with oceans, mountains, plants, trees, forests, flowers, rivers, deserts, fields and species of animals; full of life, on this wonderful planet Earth.

Earth, our home in nature in the vast cosmic space. Earth is full of beauty and full of life. We are Mother Nature’s Sons. Now, in the era of the Anthropocene, the world’s population comprise about seven billion human beings. There are 195 countries in the world today. A humanity. A world. A better future and hope for all human beings. A paradise called Earth.

All to expand the consciousness that humans are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success.

Life’s most beautiful flower in universe.
