It’s incredible to think about the human anatomy and how we got here. We came from single-celled organisms: simple bacteria composed of basic molecular compounds. Now somehow we have developed into a complex structure, fueled by everything around us. And yet, the most important lesson I have learned in regards to the development of the human structure is that in all those years that we have grown away from our origin of species, humans have dug our roots deeper into the earth. From the ions that control voltage in our mind to the iron that flows through our blood, we have evolved to not be creatures of the earth. We, alongside the vast continuum of life we live with, are the earth.
