“Is it as cold up there as it is down here?”

“No, son. Humans couldn’t abide the cold we enjoy. They weren’t made for it.”

“I don’t think I was, either,” sighed the child. “Can they see us?”

“No, They have eyes that see only reflections, but not reality. They imagine they are the only beings who exist at their level.”

“How can that be?”

“They see only what they understand. What they don’t understand, they fear.”

“Wow. That’s no way to live.”

“Indeed not.”

  1. I went to see the new Pandora movie yesterday and in it the Pandoran humanoids live both in the trees and have ways of staying under water for long periods of time. They have telepathic communication with the whale-like creatures and consider them part of the tribe. I like your imagination in this, Linda, and I think why the heck not. It’s as likely to be true as not true. Happy Holidays!

  2. This is very different this week. Very philosophical. It reminds me of a video I saw in a course I’ve taken years ago where a buddhist nun was speaking about human perception and reflection. About our perception being only on the surface, reflecting, and having no idea whatsoever of what’s underneath it.
