  • I want to invite you, at the end of this lecture to continue this line of thought. In your actions and lives as members of the community of Al-Andalus, and as parts of your atomic societies.

  • Proposal 2: the greatest force cannot eradicate differences in thoughts, and action. As we risk moving away from democracy in the physical world, it is as if we acquired an autoimmune disease, which is this dictatorial illusion of total control. We cannot give up the values at the heart of what our societies are in order to assure that nothing escapes our control.

  • Proposal 1: we have to treat our body, and our biology with respect. Those who we sometimes we feel are intruders, in reality are an indispensable part of what we are. If we create an apparent monoculture by aiming to kill off everything that doesn’t neatly fit into our expected ecology, what we prepare is only our own downfall. (Do you realize how foolishly dangerous is to force bacteria to evolve resistance to the antibacterial products if we use them daily, only to be let off by them when we need them most?)
