'Sapiens' by Yuval Noah Harari

Yogis believe everything we see is Maya. An illusion that clouds reality. How we see the world is our story. The closest we can come to truth as beings that think by separating and connecting ideas. Through categories and boundaries. Harari's 'Sapiens' is a history of our shared stories. The layer of meaning we add to what we experience to help it make sense, and help us function in a very confusing world. Through Empires, Religion, Nations, Money, Science and various other tools of communication, our worlds have become more connected. Our consciousness more shared. This is a powerful book to read for anyone interested in community building, or how and why we interact.
