That IS the greater challenge, to understand and appreciate commonalities and how everything is integrally interconnected. The differences are usually blatantly obvious. Our minds are conditioned to compare/ contrast. To recognize what's alike beyond the differences requires an elevated level of thinking. One must be AWARE to realize how interconnectedness works.

The strongest points run the deepest. The weakest are superficial.
