If we are indeed all individuals, spinning within our own solar systems, why is it that we are constantly colliding with one another? We crash into each other with such force that all involved are forced to take notice, but strangely enough we have a tendency to resume life as it was before. It takes an act of God,or whatever powers you choose to believe in or ignore, to get us to stop long enough to see beyond ourselves. When did this all happen? Have we always been so self contained? When did being an open, honest, trusting person more concerned with making someone else smile than accruing worldly possessions become such a rarity? Why is it admirable to simply be a human being? Who knows. Maybe we've always been this way. Maybe we are finally evolving to see the error of human nature. The world spins madly on.
