Step Back



All the things that torment humanity, the division, the corruption, the waste - they all depend for their existence on people pushed up to the glass.

We split things further and further into smaller and smaller parts, and think of ourselves as pioneers when we give a new name to a division we have invented.

We live and die inside the tiniest of the tiny, the little ideas and little conflicts that we allow to fill our field of vision.

It's not that pain is big.  It's that we're looking at it from very, very close.

It's not that conflict is big.  It's that we're looking at it from very, very close.

It's not that despair is big.  It's that we're looking at it from very, very close.

It's not that anxiety is big.  It's that we're looking at it from very, very close.

It's not that hate is big.  It's that we're looking at it from very, very close.

It's not that all our nightmares are big.  It's that we're looking at them from very, very close.

Up close, everything is complex.  Step back - far enough - and everything becomes simple.

Step back.
