From my personal experience looking at the world, I see human apes caught up in their heads. They usually aren’t looking around with wonder, but engage in only short glances.
We aren’t beasts. We can recognize our own awareness and divinity. Look down at your hands and you can see the Homo ancestors in you.
Doesn’t that put trivial problems in perspective?
You are old, my friend. Breathe deeply, for you breathe because of your ancestors.
Now make something that wows them.
