Machine quality pulls away from our human nature. It pulls us away, because we are not touching on what we are truly touching. To truly touch in the actions that we do, gives meaning to our lives. In lay men’s term, life will be black and white. Also, mixtures of grays and what could be empty space. Thus, we need to uphold the qualities of our human nature by letting go of new stuff.

There once was a man who was walking by and witness a bird hatching. The man thought it was a wonder to stumble upon a miracle of life. It was an egg shell about as the size of one inch or two.

The strongest connection we have are with those that are connected to life with us. Rather of what one may have, which is defined as far as just mere possessions. Possessions could have a detailed likeness that could give us what we need at moments in our life. There is a kind of depth that cannot be compared as to a heart to heart connection.
