Horizon by Deere Horizon by Deere
You're human.

You're a concious collective of atoms and molecules attached to another collective of atoms and molecules moving through an unfathomably large volume of space.

You are born of probabilities, an endless series of events from the tiniest collisions over billions of years with endless possibilities of what could happen or form. You are an impossibly small statistic. You are born of chaos.

You're alive. You'll die. Some things will go good, some things will go bad. Some people will notice, some won't. Some people are remembered. Some aren't.

But no-one is remembered for how comfortable they made their lives, how much money they made for themselves, how many laws they adhered to, how they "owned" nice things, how they fit invisibly with everyone into the intangible, invisible system that humanity has created for itself to try and bring order to existence. People are remembered by how much of an impact they had on their peers and humanity as a whole in their wake. They're the next tiny chaotic collision. And what will that grow to in another few billion years?

So ask yourself, what are you going to do with your short blip of existence as a concious being? How are you going to change the universe?

Yep, you're spot on with those two! I also did the covers for S.P.Y's Future Tense single and his Love & Hate EP, Other Echoes debut EP (and a forthcoming digital release) and the Med School compilation "Blood Pressure" :)

Great series! I enjoyed your thoughts as well....reminded me of this poem by Mary Oliver (especially the last line);

The Summer Day

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention,
how to fall down
into the grass,
how to kneel down
in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

~ Mary Oliver ~
