Human civilisation has established vastly. Through the vast development of technology, people are being connected with each other effortlessly. World is no longer a mystery,
no more boundary. Paradoxically, in this boundless world, humans live their life
within the wall of suspicion and deception. Technology has opened possibility but also closed probability. Thus, even continuous transformation is unavoidable, we need to stop for a short moment and look back to our starting point: Humanity.
As a universal and infinite aspect, humanity will bring us back to the world of diversity.
A real utopia where we can respect each other. A world of love, happiness, and
admiration. The world of innocence where
we can genuinely live our life with honesty and completely.
