From One Void To The Next
Beware of an old man in a profession where men usually die young.
Don't be bitter, be better.
Alan Watts. Genius.
I've always felt this way, but not dared step away from the machine completely. Because nobody else does, do they? Except those rare exceptions; exceptional individuals you aspire to become as, but dare not take the step to. The gap feels too far. You can't simply step over. You need to swim across the void. You need to reach the other side, though maybe you can't even see it. Maybe you don't know if it's even there...
Who dares venture into that darkness? When some people are born so rich they can build their bridges. They can charter expeditions. They can see to it there is another side before they take the chance. Or maybe they were born on the right side already.
But some people do take the leap anyway. The ones who have nothing to lose. The ones who change the world.
