we are that



We are the children of this beautiful planet that we have lately seen photographed from the moon. 
We are not delivered into it by some god, but have come forth from it.
We are its eyes and mind, its seeing and its thinking.
And the earth, together with its sun, this light around which it flies like a moth, came forth, we are told, from a nebula; and that nebula, in turn, from space.
So that we are the mind, ultimately, of space …

—Joseph Campbell
