We Are All Linked

Kari spends much of her time thinking about the meaning of life and time. She has concluded love is the meaning and time doesn't exist.

Quantum Entanglement

Quantum entanglement is a strange phenomenon. Two particles will behave in exactly the same way no matter how far apart they are. If you change something about one, the other will simultaneously change also. This interconnectedness is how I view the world.

A Short Lesson In Quantum Entanglement


I believe that everything is interconnected. Humans, nature, our world, and even the entire universe, we are all part of each other. As humans, we want and need companionship. People without strong ties to family or community die earlier than people who do. We were never meant to be alone.

Just as people are interconnected, so is the world and the universe. We are all part of the same set of whatever emerged out of that big bang. Once we were together, now we are apart. I feel our apartness is actually a present (or learning experience) from God. We can never truly appreciate being together unless we have been apart.

We are not just our physical bodies. We are also our spirit, our soul. I feel this part of us is pure energy. Energy cannot be destroyed. I think after this world our energies are more combined. No more loneliness, no more isolation, no more thinking we are not understood. This is what heaven is all about. It is all about being connected.

This poem is about how we were all interconnected, how we broke off into each and how we want to get back together again.


“We are one,” we said.

All begins with us,

And, with us, all will end.

As one we seemed,

As one we lived,

Happiness in harmony.

Friction appeared,

A tiny fracture.

At the center of us,

Through all that mattered.

A fissure called I.

Inside out we were drawn,

Hung out to dry,

Through this fissure called I.

Thinking a blessing,

This curse in disguise.

Coming out I by I

On the other side.

Alone and apart,

We now I.

All became each,

With us out of reach.

The pain hit our souls.

We cried out in hurt.

A shocked exhaled gasp

That threw us apart.

As dandelions fly on a breeze,

We flew through all eternity.

As Dandelions Fly On A Breeze

We flew through all eternity
We flew through all eternity

Further we flew

Alone and apart.

Until all of we

Was just plain forgot.

Singly now,

Is wonder why

The questions of life

Just seem to fly by.

Small units of we,

We Is live our lives.

Longing to be

A part of the part.

Deep inside, memory lives,

Longing longs.

For the days altogether.

No longer alone.

In pain Is cry out, “Why, WHY??!!”

Why can’t I be whole?

Why am I apart?

Never, ever knowing

That we lived in Is' hearts.

Still to this day Is seek

to become part of we.

Wanting to fill the

Emptiness of me.

We Are All Linked

Happiness is togetherness.
Happiness is togetherness.

Beautiful and Well Worth Watching

      Thank you so much, Catherine! These are things I truly believe in. :)

      What a beautiful poem filled with profound insights interconnectedness and separateness. I read it through twice so I could better consider the implications.

      Nell, Good to know another quantum physics freak! I'm glad you get it also. I truly believe this to be true. :)

      Fabulous! I am a quantum Physics nut so I totally get this, lol!

      William, Thank you for reading and commenting. Connectedness is one of my hobbies. I really believe it! :)

      Thank you Peggy! Being reunited is something to look forward to. I really think we are all part of one big organism, we are like the atoms of the universe.

      What you wrote really resonates with me. We are all tied together in one manner or another. As Kari mentioned our ecosystem is a perfect example. Being reunited with loved ones in the next life is something that I will cherish when my time is ended in this one. Your poem is truly thoughtful and well done.

      Thank you, Dream On. I, also, find there is more good and so many interesting things in this world! Knowing how an ecosystem works leaves me wondering how anyone could not believe in interconnectedness. And we do interact on different levels. This is one of those amazing things about life.

      I have a funny story I went to comment on your hub before and I clicked on your you tube video how we are all interconnected and off I went. I do believe we constantly interact with each other on many levels. We may be just aware of what we see or hear. Life is amazing and each day we are all part of this wonderful world. I know people find so many things wrong with life and all the people in it. I am too busy enjoying all the good so I will never get to the bad in five life times. Have a fabulous night.

      Thank you, Jackie. I agree, there are so many mysteries, and we have so much to learn. I hope to see our interconnectedness proved in my lifetime. :)

      Beautiful poem and interesting points. It is outstanding to find how alike we are not only to animals but plants too.

      There really are so many mysteries to life that I believe we will know one day and of course then it will make perfect sense.

      Thank you, Linda. They are suspicions today, but who knows what quantum science may discover tomorrow. I hope to see the day when we know we are all interconnected. :)

      This is an interesting article, Kari. Much of what you have said resonates with me. You've described some of my beliefs-or more accurately suspicions—about the nature of reality.

      Thank you Peg! I also think we reunite. I think that when people of near death experiences talk of a great peace they feel that this is why. :)

      What a beautiful concept and a lovely poem to go with the idea. I believe we are one and will be reunited one day as our spirits live on. Thanks for this reminder.

      Jo, Thank you so much! This is something I spend much time thinking about. :)

      Dr. Mehmood, Thanks for reading and commenting. We are, individually, tiny, as you say. But together we are everything. Together we are as large as the universe. :)

      In this vast vast universe we are so tiny. But, as you so beautifully pointed out, we are a part of that whole. We all are inter - connected. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Kari.

      Each and every person is important. We all interact with each other and influence our days. Thanks Dora, for reading and commenting.

      Your poem proves the importance of one person, realizing how much all is influenced by the action of one. Thanks for putting these thoughts in our minds.

      Linda, exactly. I believe one person can change the world. It is like a fractal. If you change one little piece, it changes the entire design. Thanks.

      Patricia, that is a beautiful quote. We are all a part of each other. When we hurt another, we hurt ourselves. I have believed this as long as I can remember. :)

      We are indeed all one ....each of us a part of the 'we.'When I was a senior in high school I composed a research paper on John Donne....and one of the quotes that resonates with me today is...."No man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main."

      So glad you shared this...we need to remind each other of the truth of your words each day.

      Angels are on the way to you this morning ps
