Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence … a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.
— Plato (via inthenoosphere)
As we turn from the galaxies to the swarming cells of our own being, which toil for something, some entity beyond their grasp, let us remember man, the self-fabricator who came across an ice age to look into the mirrors and magic of science. Surely he did not come to see himself or his wild visage only. He came because he is at heart a listener and a searcher for some transcendent realm beyond himself.
— Loren Eiseley (via inthenoosphere)
Even sleepers are workers and collaborators in what goes on in the Universe.
— Heraclitus (via inthenoosphere)
