We pretend space isnt there. It is all just backround – and we forget about it. The supremely important thing to be concerned with is like a hypnotic song: eat – sleep – work! In our current culture we can maybe add something like a hedonistic break on the weekend. There we forget ourselves or on the opposite: indulge in our socalled pleasures.
We confuse the world as it is with the world that we talk about and describe. There is the real world and then there is a whole system of symbols to use to describe this world. But we confuse the symbols with reality. Like we confuse money with wealth or the name and image of ourselves – with ourself. Check out Les Kaye’s speech on spiritualism and the modern world.
