  • In all of creation things are made to balance. From the thin air on the peak of Everest to the dense darkness of the Marianas Trench, from lightning quick cheetahs to sluggard sloths and even from the modest amoeba to the gargantuan computing power of the Homo sapien brain. So if everything is in balance then for every giant wish sent heavenward to come true you're depending on at least one important little prayer.
