hmmm.. i have mentioned before how this earth is possibly the world's largest multiverse..
i have also mentioned how amazing it is that this multiverse is one in which every single element is connected.
to me that boggles the mind.
think about it.
we pass one another everyday.. we nod/greet people all the time..
and yet we never wonder..
that person you nodded to today morning might have been on their way to their promotion.
or for that matter, their rejection.
the man that you pass on your way home; may be wondering why he is living.
the lady at the bus stop might be wondering what her baby girl is doing at playschool.
at this point you might be thinking – 'what is the point of telling me stuff i don't want to know ? who the hell cares what other people are doing/thinking ?'
but therein lies my wonderment.
that man might be an acquaintance of your closest friend.
that lady's elder son might be going to school with your brother.
that person might have gone to school with..[prepare yourself].. your dad's best friend's nephew's cousin's mom.
i have a vague concept of 'six degrees of separation' coming to mind.. this was something that said that every human on earth is separated from another by a maximum of six degrees of separation. as in upto six people can fall between one person and another; such that the two people can find a connection.
[this was illustrated in 'pay it forward'.. in a very vague manner.]
now to the point of all this.. we humans might be separated from one another by six degrees; and yet..
that could be six thousand miles for the way that we live our lives.
we are getting completely isolated from one another.
think about it.
it doesn't matter that another is a fellow human, it matters that we have to know them in some way.
we don't have to swear eternal love for the people on the street; but we must at least acknowledge that they exist.
it's a feature i think.. unique to humans.. we live like islands in a sea of life..
you never know.. those people you notice everyday out of the corner of your eye; may need someone to acknowledge them; rather than swear friendship forever.
you don't even know when you may need it !
