The thin strip of reality...

The material world, aka "reality," is such a tightly regulated space, it can only take a sliver of us at a time. The vast rest of our self must sit and watch from the unearthly sidelines. And the things we put into this space are at best crude and fragile representations of abstract notions and cognitive or emotional constructs. Artists try to bring things into reality that remind us of the rest of being. Politicians try to own this narrow strip of experience. Kids are bored by it, and adults struggle to maintain their place in it. Crazy thing.
