Is there another way to reconcile these brothers and sisters?

Those who see the universe as one, perhaps even as part of G-d, see humans as at home here, part of the all there is. Humans are descended from stardust. Others see man (often as male only) as thrust into a foreign and inhospitable place, here to subdue and suffer.

So we have those who think all creation is part of the same family tree, and those who think we are exiles in a foul and odious land. One wants to redeem it all, the other wants to defeat it all. Fairly antagonistic pictures: that may well be the difficulty they have in speaking with each other.

It is easy to say the first has a wider view and therefore is more likely to be the one which will gather them together. Is there another way to reconcile these brothers and sisters?
