The current design represents a partial solar system of our inner plants (L-R: The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars - not manipulated to scale!). From the very first notes of this song, I am transported to outer space - where you can view the world for what it truly is - one united Earth, with all of humanity sharing the very same home. Being able to see the Earth hanging in the black endless space like this would be an eye-opener to say the least - your mind and soul would open to the true reality of all human life - how we are put on this Earth altogether, to learn how to live with each other. And "Heal the World", for me, aims to send the simplest message of this reality - why don't we all just fix our conflicts, and try to get along and support each other? :*)Image/brush credits:
