We are an interconnected society. The human experience is a de facto jigsaw puzzle by design. The soul of each human being is endowed with one part extending outward – i.e. his/her unique talents and gifts which were given to share with the world, and a part which is missing that points inward – i.e. the human dimension that requires reliance on others, what sociologist Philip Wexler calls “reciprocity.” For the puzzle to be completed, one must ignore the exterior, body-based differences, and focus on the inner life – that of the soul. This interconnectedness is fundamental to creating a happy, just, and caring society.
