Since we’ve evolved to survive above the water, we’ve developed the remarkable ability to breathe. It’s all thanks to a tiny spec of iron in a molecule called Haemoglobin A.

The beauty of Hb A is that we all share the same piece of fragmented iron that emerged from a supernova several billion years ago.

Because of this, we breathe and bleed the same way no matter what our surface details are.

So let us remember that our differences today are in cosmic terms, so insignificant that only insignificant people really spend all their time focusing on it.

And my heart bleeds for them.
