As a modern culture, we are surviving because we are most adapted to our environment. The catch is, we are also actively creating that environment.
Time is space, and when it’s all filled up, you can’t move, and there’s nothing to ponder, nothing to cherish, nothing to celebrate, nothing to grieve. You get deaths and lotteries announced in the same nihilistic sentence. When it’s all filled up, you can’t be heard, no matter what you say or how you sing.
