For Riley and Laine
“We experience events and life from within complex physical bodies on a planet that spins on a wobbling titled axis at a thousand miles per hour. We orbit around a four and a half billion year old star that is one hundred and nine times larger than our planet at sixty six thousand miles per hour in a spiralling growing galaxy of up to three hundred million other stars. Our Galaxy expands and moves within a universe of up to three hundred billion other galaxies..............and day to day, barely no one asks why.”

First Edition - July 2008A look at our current place in humanity and to show that right now, especiallyin the western world, we should really be stepping back and asking ‘why’about a multitude of different things.
“Your beliefs today may not be the same as your beliefs in the future. The same as your past beliefs are not those of today.”
