In her talk, Artvine explains individual and collective significance by drawing three parallels of past creations such as the alphabet, human body function and human character to the mind, body, and spirit. Her TEDx talk outlines how our creations now send messages to our future generations, about our character and culture, just as past creations send a message to the generations living now. As we are living a creative era, Artvine touches on being mindful about our creations, and shaping our messages through a focus on the human spirit, consciousness, and human character traits of compassion, empathy, kindness, resilience and spirituality. Our individual significance only shows when we recognize that humanity functions as a collective, and vice versa.
