Creativeness is the place where no one has ever been. You must leave the city of your comfort and enter the desert of your intuition.
― Alan Alda
We are transient
The instinctive and unconscious desire to be more than we can be by ourselves alone seems to be the driving force behind evolutionary change. Nature has been producing matter and life for billions of years, long before self-consciousness arose in the form of the human species. Our self-reflective species did not cause the universe to exist. Time and space arrived before human cognition.
— Kenneth Harper Finton
It's better to think of "I" or "me" as a reference point like "here" or "Tuesday".
