This is a single world with one family of sentient beings joined by interdependence and, for humans and perhaps for many others, by compassion.

My dream is a world or cosmic living space enriched by the great diversity of life, ideas, and aesthetic expression. Such a world transcends all political, religious, cultural, and ethnic boundaries while including all that's valuable in each.
