Not a new notion
"‘The one story includes us all. We are, everyone, cousins to one another. Every being is intimately present to and immediately influencing every other being. We see quite clearly that what happens to the non-humans happens to the humans. What happens to the outer world happens to the inner world. If the outer world is diminished in its grandeur then the emotional, imaginative, intellectual and spiritual life of the human is diminished or extinguished....we might become impoverished in all that makes us human.”
Thomas Berry - The Great Work
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.....Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love....Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality."
Martin Luther King Jr.
