Being one and being connected

“I think therefore I am.” For that to be true my thoughts must be my own. I must be separate from others.

Yet we live intertwined with other humans, flora and fauna alike. Our body depends on breathing air that we all breathe. I remember once hearing that the water that makes up our body used to be dinosaur pee.

Could it be possible that I am fully me and we are fully connected all at once? Perhaps that is the mystery of life itself.
