Each of us carries an irrational, small view of the world. How could we possibly know everything that is going on at this moment? All the pain and joy everyone is feeling?
Instead, we shrink the world down to a size that we find palpable. Easy to digest. Make shortcuts. Until we make the world too small. Not enough possibilities or opportunities. If someone gets a bigger slice it must mean mine is smaller.
The world is small in the scheme of the universe, and yet, much larger playing field than we tend to operate in.
