This photograph brings to mind Max Planck, the founder of Quantum Theory and someone who thought about “reality” and “nature.”

Commenting on his friend, Einstein said of Planck — “He showed convincingly that in addition to the atomistic structure of matter there is a kind of atomistic structure to energy, governed by the universal constant h, which was introduced by Planck.”

For those who care about society and themselves, it’s important to grow in our understanding of the reality (interconnectedness) of nature — including our spiritual nature, and consciously participate in it.
