The Other

<<Feb. 23/15.>>


Once upon a time

There was a tribe of “human beings”


Taken for granted in tribal life were

  • collaboration
  • cooperation
  • community


& when separation came along

& blew it all to smithereens


Suddenly there was nothing but Other

Now, everyone was Other


The fear

& the envy


Took root

& multiplied


Multiplied endlessly.


On a finite planet

Dominated by fear of other

Envy of other


& a host of insatiable “needs” born of neurosis

Neuroses caused by the separation


Disaster was simply inevitable.


Do you see?
