Everything is Connected to the Whole!
Everything is Connected to the Whole! is the fifth Wild Resiliency Assertion.
The phenomenon of non-locality is one of the cutting edge research arenas of quantum physics:
how it is that two subatomic particles, separated by time and space, can and do behave in resonance with each other. It is similar in our forest, where predator and prey cooperate in a great relational-spiral-play of co-creative evolution.
Everything exists only through and in relation-ship. Squirrel exists only in and through relationship with soil and fungi and water and fire and shadow and hawk. We exist in and through relation with mother and father and bacteria in our gut and fire in our bellies and water’s hydration flowing through our veins. The universe is akin to a hologram wherein each of its component parts are fractal reflections of the whole. The web of life is woven of interdependency; it is all tied to together.

It strange to use the word “cooperate” when you describe the movement of the whole. Cooperate implies, to me, a conscious act, where really all these things evolved together– the movement and life is around functionality supporting an an interdependent web.

This was sent to me by a friend, in response to the post:
There is an interesting article in the current Geographic about transmission of disease from animals to humans – and from humans to animals. Billy Karesh of the Wildlife Conservation Society says “It’s not about wildlife health or about human health or about livestock health. There’s really just one health.”
