“I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the oceans and shores;
I change, but I cannot die.”
Once upon a time we humans were wild creatures. We banded together in little herds and roamed the Earth, eating fruit and hunting small animals. And like other nomadic beasts, we suffered greatly. We starved when food was scarce, we froze when the weather was cold, we died when illness struck.
