Polarity Defined


part of: Aspects of Being

by Sariah

Frankly, how many people are alive on Earth right now? Is it going to hurt us if a million die? How many would have to die before it starts to hurt us as a race?

Until it starts to hurt us as a whole (not individually), We (the big We) probably won’t worry too much about how many of us are dying in mass shootings, civil wars, hurricanes/cyclones, disease outbreaks, police-based conflicts, famines, or war. That is my explanation for our hands hanging at our sides, mouths open, lack of movement stance regarding all these problems. Our paralysis is overwhelming. What could break it?
