    There is a line in Guardians of the Galaxy where Drax is told that the metaphor is over his head. His reply is ‘nothing goes over my head. My reflexes are too fast!’ And of course there is the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. I’m late, I’m late, I’m late. Which is a rather impolite way of saying I don’t have time for anything else. And these things, these gaps occur both at a personal and a group or if you will pardon the word societal level. Too much focus or hurry on one aspect leads to the exclusion of other aspects. So there is listening without hearing. There is haste to get only one important thing done. There is concern for only a small subset of lives that matter to the detriment of any other lives. There is concern for the economy to the exclusion of human health of individuals, families, and communities. Oblivious exclusion that individual health and family/societal/community life are the foundation the very building blocks of the economy. Are they really really inexorably linked ???? There is the focus on re-establishing sports in the pandemic and the unconcern for arts, theater, and heaven forbid poetry. We want highly trained scientists and technicians but we would rather have a bunch of new rookie politicians still wet behind the ears every two years making all the beginner’s mistakes. Time out how did Prometheus get into this discussion. The next thing you know we will be something about repeating history… Excuse me while I switch from coffee or tea to something much much stronger.
