I transform into many things to feed him
and he gives so abundantly.
I flourish under his pressure.
He’s so possessive because he actually does have everything I need,

The cosmic perspective opens our minds to extraordinary ideas
but does not leave them so open that our brains spill out,
making us susceptible to believing anything we’re told.

The cosmic perspective not only embraces our genetic kinship with all Life on Earth,
but also values our chemical kinship with any yet-to-be discovered Life in the Universe.
