Our Planet Is Only as Big as a House!

“And that is how I made another crucial discovery: Our entire planet is only as big as a house!” (Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince)

A Cnet News Blog Post called “Proof of Six Degrees of Separation” states, “In a research paper from June 2007, titled ‘Worldwide Buzz: Planetary-Scale Views on an Instant-Messaging Network,’ Eric Horvitz of Microsoft Research and Jure Leskovec of Carnegie Mellon University analyzed 30 billion conversations among 240 million people using Microsoft Instant Messenger in June 2006. It turned out that the average path length, or degree of separation, among the anonymized users probed was 6.6. Six degrees of separation posits that a person is a step away from people they know and two steps distant from people known by the people they know—thus the magic number six.”

This fascinating research once again shows how we are all connected to each other. But like all the research we perform in this world, it reveals only the external connection between us. The wisdom of Kabbalah allows us to discover a much greater truth: How we are all internally connected.
Discovering our connection on the physical level is just a step towards discovering our innate connection on a deeper, spiritual level of nature. There, we are fully dependent on each other, working together as the cells of a single, integral organism.
