The seed of life.

For a brief moment, you and I were once together as One cell… Then we divided exponentially for approximately 200,000 years and we continue to do so as you read these words. Evolutionary biologists label this genetic togetherness as Mitochondrial Eve. Ironically, this part of the DNA is where the mutation responsible for my ALS lies. With death alluring, some ask where I seek comfort without religion and for some reason this thought does. I imagine flipping the tree of evolution over and tracing all the branches until they lead to One. Maybe, you and I will always be divided yet united in a different type of eternity... the seed of lifethe seed of life
