Astronauts who have seen the earth from space have reported experiencing the ‘oversight effect’. They perceived the earth as tiny and vulnerable, considering how big they are from their perspective. No wonder Jeffrey Bezos, Elon Musk and Richard Branson feel the need to travel in space too.

Most people value money and work over life. Lower staff members at Amazon for instance don’t even take time to pee during a day of throwing iPads in a shredder. For those people we have created a black plastic bag wrapped around a pile of dirt like the universe is wrapped around the earth. There is not much vegetation left growing on the dirt. Think about that.

I regret locating the piece in the woods. Too many bugs.
