Since a dawn of civilization, we, the people, are creating divisions, drawing borders and lines in the sand to control each other, as well as to protect ourselves, mainly from one another.
With time, all those borders resulted in some obvious and some at first less noticeable differences, even among the people who had lived or live in close proximity to each other. In part, because of all that, numerous languages and cultures were born adding more diversity but also more reasons for those lines in the sand.
At the same time, our planet is following its own path of continuous evolution, in some cases influenced by us, humans, that is just adding its own spin to that mixture of diverse and complex life.
