the most effective way of presenting universality is to detach oneself from the initial source of life. reality is no longer a source of tangibility, but rather an endless number of unsolved questions.
so many beautiful people out there

We are adaptable creatures. Take in what is necessary and let it permeate through unconsciousness.
the essence of it all ultimately lies in the mind of a person. the perplexed learned to appreciate at the least expected moment of life.
