What are we made of? Simple. It's a proven fact that we are made of certain chemicals labeled as "organic". Those chemicals are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. It's the old "CHO" we learned back in middle school when we had no clue what our body was made of and frankly couldn't care less. Religions, at least most of them, also mention the fact that we are made from dirt, which of course is made of the same elements described above and then some. What is the point of writing about this substance? There are so many problems stemming from attitudes such as racism, prejudice, ethnocentricity, sexism. We are all made of the same general substance. Why do we hate so much? Why do humans insist on fighting off anyone and everyone that comes into their path? Shouldn't we treat the very substance we are made of with the same respect that we would treat ourselves? Shouldn't people just get along and be considered as equals amongst themselves without so many problems? Wouldn't it be wonderful? We must remember, we must all conclude that substance, no matter how different it may seem in other humans, is all the same stuff. We are carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, a few other chemicals and nothing more. We are CHO.
