I'm sure there is nothing like a God, but I'm also equally sure it has a stupendous sense of humor.
The shiny thing the camera is pointed at is, inevitably, quite boring. What lies in the periphery and beyond is less so, but will always disappoint with its insistence on the importance of the center of the frame. It is this tension that gives rise to all meaning, between the emptiness of the subject and the subjugation of any context to that emptiness.
If the above sounds like utter gobbledygook to you, or if you're the type who dismisses philosophy because it "asks questions it can't answer" you should probably just stop reading now.
None of this means you need to read philosophy, or even have heard of any of the philosophers I adore. What it does mean is that you need to have not found a little ledge and convinced yourself it's the world far and wide. Even better if you're alright with simply falling down the rabbit hole forever.
If I was smart I'd delete all of the gobbledygook above the previous paragraph and start there, but even to be friends you need to understand how I see the world.
What I want from those around me is an appreciation of the infinite possibilities both in front and behind them. I want someone who not only knows who they are but knows why. I want someone who isn't afraid of leaving any given self behind.
