    Without the pieces there can be no whole and without the whole the pieces have no place. What the hell does that mean? Did you know that it requires the time and effort of approximately 10,000 individuals to get the coffee from the plant to your coffee pot each and every morning?

    You are not a small and unimportant creature confined to the form of this physical body, contrary to popular belief.
