Then you pass through the tunnel that separates you from your mother’s body and into an unfamiliar world. Congratulations, you’ve already come a long way. Now you are human being on planet Earth. For several months or so your heart is literally as close to the Earth as it will ever be your entire life. You are nurtured by your mother through the bosoms that secrete love milk to sustain and nourish you. Then you learn how to walk on your own. Such great talent you have, being capable of walking on your own two feet! Then you are now able to communicate with your fellow beings with full phrases. What a genius you’ve become!
