“In some places I feel more human than usual. By human I mean mortal, and alive at the same time. Organic.

There, I remember what I am – a self aware mammal, a complex of 37 trillion cells, carrying DNA that has been mutating inside of preceding bodies for 3.8 billion years. I remember that in my smallest particles, I’m no different than the world around me. And I breathe, thrilled to be able to be.”
