DNA (Deliberate Natural Alliances)
The understanding of DNA brings both men and women, as well as humans and animals closer together. Men and women are about 98.2 percent the same, sharing 99.9 percent with all other human beings. The great apes and humans share 98.4 percent of their DNA, mice and cats about 90 percent, dogs 84 percent, cows 80 percent, birds 65 percent….to name a few examples.
The vertical center timeline indicates the actions of our present life that will influence and shape our tomorrows, symbolized by the expanding spiral. On the back of the man’s shirt are two cogwheels. They represent love and hate, connected but turning in opposite directions. The Roman numerals represent the year 553, a period in the Dark Ages where ignorance and superstition created a false reality. The momentum of helpful deeds propel an individual to the realization that our alliances to everyone and everything strengthens and builds a more caring world. The blue box on the stairs holds the destiny one has earned through their actions and behavior. The swan on the left is a symbol for purity and peace. On the opposite side, a traveler from another world is astounded by the conflicts it sees on our planet, all arising from a belief of separateness. The dog, a fellow companion, may appear strange to us but like the abovementioned creatures, perhaps also has a share in our DNA timeline. Everything is interconnected in the universe.
