We Are What We Say

Be Mindful

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.

Powerful & creative imagery

the food and education made me sad.

I have always been fascinated by these ‘world of 100 people’ things, I remember spending hours thinking through the ones on a poster at church when I was 9 or so. It really, really makes some really important stuff so blindingly clear, in numbers we can understand. And it should, I hope it does, inspire us to act. 

Amazing post.

i hope im one of the 7 people with a computer

Here’s an interesting fact: 
Babies learn to spot a red sticker placed on their forehead by looking through the mirror at ages 18 - 24 months. Chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans, dolphins, elephants, and magpies have also been said to pass this test, 
This is called the Gordon Gallup’s classic mirror self-recognition test.
This lead a group of colleagues in the Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness to assert that “the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substance that generates consciousness” 

Non human animals are conscious beings, in other news: water is wet.
