A man runs ceaselessly. Simultaneously, a space shuttle is launched.
HUMAN NATURE takes man’s physical and mental endeavours towards the aim of being first, biggest (largest) and best as it’s starting point.
What are we striving towards? Is it merely survivalism? Is it the need for social acceptance?
Our longing for identity, love and friendship, or is it the possibility of an existence of something larger than man himself, that drives us?
