Groupism: We choose our “team” in many areas of life and then stick with them and oppose all others. And worse, if we get sucked in completely, we let the group and/or its leader have total power over our own intelligence, wisdom and heart.
Human Beings as a whole make up one group. We come together after tragedies, etc. When an extraterrestrial threat happens we come together. We should live that way all the time. We have the ability to always follow the golden rule and treat others as brothers and sisters. Always. All the time.

Chris ended this episode with a wonderful quote from Henry David Thoreau:
“I have learned this, at least, by my experiment, that if one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams and endeavors to live the life that they have imagined, they will meet with success unexpected in common hours. They will put some things behind and pass an invisible boundary. New more Universal and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within this one. The old laws will be expanded and interpreted in their favor. And one begins to live with the license of a higher order of being.
“If you have built castles in the air your work need not be lost. That is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.”
