Have you ever had a plan to spend a few days of your life in different places on the planet? You could stay in, for example, Brazil, Honduras, Somalia, Palestine, France, Slovenia, Ukraine, Canada, Seoul, Bhutan, New Zealand, and Tasmania. You might have a look at other possible sides of your life there. You could just be deeply amazed that your Heart could be anywhere. You could be overwhelmingly surprised that love could be heard, seen and felt effortlessly the same in all these different places. You might come to complete silence finding yourself no longer British or Russian or German or Indian or Indonesian or American or Chinese or Japanese, or Hindu or Buddhist or Christian. Regardless of their racial, cultural and religious backgrounds, these Earth's residents could share exactly the same feelings, hopes, dreams and virtues. And one thing you could be witnessing might be that Mother Nature would prove to have never drawn any territorial boundaries across the planet.
No other creature on Earth explores natural resources, to its own benefit, as efficiently as humans do. Since early ages, humans have been developing effective techniques to ease their daily lives. From the discovery of fire to the invention of the wheel, including the invention of typography or the steam engine and the Industrial Revolution, humans always tried to stretch their own abilities, searching for and developing tools that could help improving their general well-being. Initially the quest was moved by the sole purpose of improving and easing human life, but soon it became, to a great extent, a quest for power and domination over other humans, animals and nature.
