What creature exists in a whirlwind of grief and joy, worry and relief, desperate need and humbled gratitude? Each of us lives as a testament to the enormity of that which sets us apart from all other life.
It is that which is beyond momentary fits of fight or flight, hunger and satisfaction. We stand alone in the Universe. Our uniqueness is not in the composition of the body, but that which dwells within.
