“The universe is shaped exactly like the earth
if you go straight long enough you’ll end up where you were.”
One of the characters made the point that we are all on the same plane of space-time, and in that sense we are all connected. Now say what you will for Zen, but I like to think of this statement for what it is. The sheer fact that we share space and air and water and time together — that fact alone should impel us to live focused on each other and not ourselves. You don’t have to be a Christian with a Golden Rule to live this way. But it helps.
