Everything living is connected, we are all one. And really everything is living, but on a different time scale. Trees live for hundreds of years, while humans are considered to be old at 100 years, if not sooner. My dog though, I would call her old when she was about 10 years old. You might think that we are all different, but we all speak the same language. It is called the universal rhythm. The cracking sound of trees when sped up beats to the universal rhythm, but on a time scale that is much longer. There was a documentary made on this topic, which must have slipped through my grasp, I will attach a link once I am able to find it again. Let me know what you all have found on the topic.
