I finished reading Machines Like Me by Ian McEwan.
It begins with this quote from Rudyard Kipling in “The Secret of the Machines”.
But remember, please, the Law by which we live,
We are not built to comprehend a lie ….
I wonder if that’s why we’re struggling so deeply and intensely with the current litany of lies. We’re not built to comprehend such deliberate intention to deceive for the benefit of a few, rather than the wealth of the whole.
Tonight I watched My Octopus Teacher on Netflix. It’s a beautiful meditation on life and death and trust in the transformation that sustains us as we feed, play, interact, and release. It’s the perfect antidote to fear, and a philosophical statement on unity supporting the waves of change.
