For we see that part of the world open to us as significant to us in some way, a significance made actual in words and deeds. Our behaviour differs significantly according to our perspective at any one time. We can, if we wish, see things as metabolic systems; as a means of feeding our children; as objects of pity or wonder; as a metaphor for human existence; as a chemical industry’s resource bank; as sacred text written in fire, stone and water.
We can see this under an electron microscope, where the fundamental division (and connection) in life forms is not between plants and animals, but between bacteria (organisms composed of small cells with no nuclear membrane surrounding their genes) and all other life forms (including humans) composed of cells with nuclear membranes.

Therefore we necessarily live and work, individually and together, in and with partial perspectives.
