This song was inspired by reading quotes from Edgar Mitchell and Carl Sagan and Michael Collins who speak of the overwhelming unity and instant global consciousness you gain by looking back at the earth from the moon, and recognizing it as a one single breathing organism.
“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it." -Edgar Mitchell
“I really believe that if the political leaders of the world could see their planet from a distance of, let's say 100,000 miles, their outlook would be fundamentally changed . The all-important border would be invisible, that noisy argument suddenly silenced. The tiny globe would continue to turn, serenely ignoring its subdivisions, presenting a unified facade that would cry out for unified understanding, for homogeneous treatment.” - Michael Collins
Today this is dedicated to the connection we all have as humans on this one single planet that we share. The essential connection we share the same between family as strangers, with no less and no more regardless of country, race, class, or any other barriers that divide us when we look with too narrow a focus. One planet. One love.
