“Since our early ancestors first glimpsed their reflection in water the mirror has served as our most immediate means of personal identification.  While our sense of self is intricately linked to our physical image, the discovery of DNA and subsequent mapping of the human genome has introduced a new mode of observation and level of perception, on the one hand acutely defining out personal differences, while at the same time extending our awareness beyond the bounds of individualism and enabling us to witness our undeniable bonds with the rest of the natural world.”  Karen Casey
