If outer space beings would visit our planet they would ask us what we call it. We would answer: planet Earth, from the old Germanic goddess Eartha, and also Gaya, from the Greek belief that the Earth is a nebula, Goddess Gaya, which became the Earth.
They would comment: that is beautiful but from what we see around us you should change its name to planet Business and Marketing.
Our comment: well, this was thought of also by the Romans who called it planet Pluto (wealth) and planet Mammon (the God of money).

Life is born from the ecstasy of love. That says a lot about the importance of love.
