It has been well known in the East for centuries that all things are connected. Now, western science is beginning to catch up. (Why is it the scientific field which we have so venerated in the west is in many ways centuries or even millenia behind the thinking of the East. There is no scientific evidence... Did it ever occur to them that there is no evidence because they don't know every thing yet?) Hexagram 30 tells us that this is an image of a net in which animals are ensnared. The entire universe is an intermeshing net, in which we are trapped. We are all a part of the universal whole, and in that sense we are all one. There is no separation. The atoms, electrons, quarks, whatever that make up matter are all interconnected, and the latest scientific evidence shows that fundamental units of matter are really universal, and even seem to be aware of then nature of other electrons that are at a distance. This is because all matter is maden upn of mind stuff. Matter exists because of the vibrations created inn the mind of, shall we say God? Knowing this is true, and recognizing the reality that there is no separation, how careful should we be that we treat our fellow man with respect, dignity, and fairness, for in hurting another, we hurt ourselves.
