    I would love to see a world where people are ready to get real with the energy we possess and have at our disposal.

    A day where we are no longer suppressed by the 'institution" of life and we can celebrate life like the video suggested.

    This very inspirational to say the least. I firmly believe we are branches of one race, the present day human race. Being an anthropologist by training, I think as many others do based the information we now have, the human species included more "families" than just today's H. sapiens sapiens. The others that we know of died for some apparent reason, our family remained. Thus the terminology that has been used to classify us and divide us is both scientifically inaccurate and biologically invalid. We all exist on this planet together and our survival is interconnected.

    In the mental health field, the inability to empathize with others is a significant trait of sociopathy. As people began to evolve more, perhaps we will move further away from an insane world. Ultimately, regardless of what the present situation is, our goal should be to expand what it means to be human.

    they should have a word that means the opposite of wisdom...
    this word would explain how we can start off as babies being empathetic towards this world
    but by the time of our death...for some a lot sooner...be void of any empathy towards their fellow man and this world...
    great video...

    one love

    i think empathy is taught out of you - thats how you lose empathy - at least empathy between people outside your own group - not just school i mean teachin you but things like news reports - like say a plane crashes in greece or somewhere - they make a special point of emphasisin if any americans were on board - were taught to empathize with people we never met over empathisin with other people we never met
