“Is this a quote about life?”
“There are 31,530,000 seconds in a year, a thousand milliseconds in a second, a million microseconds, a billion nanoseconds. And the one constant connecting nanoseconds to years is change. The universe, from atom to galaxy, is in a perpetual state of flux. But we humans don’t like change; we fight it, it scares us. So we create the illusion of stasis. We want to believe in a world at rest, the world of right now, yet our great paradox remains the same. The moment we grasp the now that now is gone. We cling to snapshots, but life is moving pictures, each nanosecond different from the last. Time forces us to grow, to adapt because every time we blink our eyes the world shifts beneath our feet. Electrons bump into each other and react; people collide and alter each other’s paths. Change isn’t easy, more often it’s wrenching and difficult, but maybe that’s a good thing, because it’s change that makes us strong, keeps us resilient, and teaches us to evolve.”
“In 1992, a shipping container fell overboard on its way from China to the United States, losing 29,000 rubber ducks in the Pacific Ocean.
2,000 of the ducks were caught up in the North Pacific Gyre. A vortex of currents. Items that get caught in the gyre usually stay in the gyre. Doomed to travel the same path, forever circling in the same waters, but not always. Their paths can be altered by a change in the weather, a storm at sea, a chance encounter with a pod of whales.
Twenty years after the rubber ducks were lost at sea, they are still arriving on beaches around the world. And the number of ducks in the gyre has decreased, which means it’s possible to break free, even after years of circling the same waters. It’s possible to find a way to shore”
As seen in “Touch TV series”
I can see what you see not
Vision milky, then eyes rot.
When you turn, they will be gone,
Whispering their hidden song.
Then you see what cannot be
Shadows move where light should be.
Out of darkness, out of mind,
Cast down into the Halls of the Blind.
