"Like an iteration of an inter-nested fractal, the (macro)cosmic, collective process that is happening on the world stage reflects and reveals itself on the inner, personal plane [of the individual] at the same time, as well as vice versa. Different dimensional reflections of each other, the outer collective process and the inner personal process, are beyond interconnected--they are the same process simply explicating itself in different dimensions of our being simultaneously. The microcosm (our inner, personal process) and macrocosm (the world process), directly, instantaneously, and reciprocally affect each other, as the two are one and the same. This means that the way to effect real change in the world is to transform ourselves by becoming more conscious, as, holographically speaking, the world is enfolded within us while at the same time, 'We Are The World'"
