: We can't help but wonder how much difference one person makes in the world. We look inside ourselves, questioning if we have the capacity for heroism and greatness. But the truth is, every time we take an action, we make an impact. Every single thing we do has an effect on the people around us. Every choice we make sends ripples out into the world. Our smallest acts of kindness can cause a chain reaction of unforeseen benefits for people we've never met. We might not witness those results, but they happen all the same.
: The point when all things are possible; the moment when a choice was made or an action taken; the breath inhaled before a first step forward. And the most lasting chain reactions that are started by those moments. And actions and choices are always the ones that are started by love.
] Today we'll send over 300 billion e-mails, 19 billion text messages, yet we'll still feel alone. The average person will say 2250 words to 7,4 other individuals, will these words be used to hurt or to heal?
: 7 billion people on a tiny planet, suspended in the vastness of space, all alone. How we make sense of that is the great mystery of all of our existence. Maybe it's being alone in the universe that holds us all together, keeps us needing each other in the smallest of ways, creating a quantum entanglement of you, of me, of us. And if that's really true, then we live in a world where anything is possible.
: There are infinite ways to communicate; some better than others. Today, the average person will say 17,520 words to 7.4 other individuals. Yet change the language, one border to the next, and we are helpless. Stumbling to explain the simplest of concepts: I want, I am, I love. My name is Jake. I was born on October 26, 2000. I've been alive for 11 years, 8 months and 16 days. And in all that time, I've never said a single word. But that's about to change.
: The chromatic scale consists of 12 tones. Arranged in time and sequence. These 12 simple tones create an infinite variety of music. Harmony and dissonance, tension and resolution - all can be described by the mathematical ratios between tones. If we could translate all ratios into sound? We could hear the Music of the Spheres; a sound as immense, as powerful as the universe itself. As quiet as a single stone. As beguiling as the human heart. For some, music elevates the spirit to a place of transcendent beauty. Others simply hear the beauty in the numbers themselves. The Earth, as it rotates, emits a frequency, a musical note, at 7.83 hertz. But this frequency alters slightly, for reasons as yet uncertain. Some postulate solar flares as the cause, or electrical disturbance in the atmosphere. But maybe there's a simpler explanation. Maybe the sound of the planet is influenced by the seven billion souls whirring around it, each producing their own music, adding their own harmony.
: In spite of all communication technologies, no invention is as effective as the sound of the human voice. Jake Bohm
: When we hear the human voice, we instinctively want to listen, in hopes of understanding it. Jake Bohm
: Even when the speaker is searching for the right words to say. Jake Bohm
: Even when all we hear is yelling, or crying, or singing. Jake Bohm
: That's because the human voice resonates differently from anything else in the world. Jake Bohm
: That's why we can hear a singer's voice over the sound of a full orchestra. Jake Bohm
: We will always hear that singer, no matter what else surrounds it.
: Human beings are not the strongest species on the planet. We're not the fastest, or maybe even the smartest. The one advantage we have is our ability to cooperate, to help each other out. We recognize ourselves in each other and were programmed for compassion, for heroism, for love, and those things make us stronger, faster and smarter. That's why we've survived. It's why we want to.
