Deep Thoughts for Tuesday

Sometimes I wonder about humanity, and space, and whether there’s a force that binds us together, that pulls us along and attaches us, each to the other, with invisible strings.  The star of your mother being one of your closest neighbors, the occasional comet an acquaintance who moved away, distant planets people on other continents.  All beings with the same components, the same driving force, the same fundamental truths. 

Or maybe chaos holds the day and those flashes of light in the darkness are only figments or sensory data, none of them with any similarity to you, none of them with anything to offer except a passing diversion.  Each his own universe.

"As soon as we express something, we devalue it strangely. We believe ourselves to have dived down into the depths of the abyss, and when we once again reach the surface, the drops of water on our pale fingertips no longer resemble the ocean from which they came...Nevertheless, the treasure shimmers in the darkness unchanged." ---Franz Kafka
