Every second of every day,
we crave change.
We reflect and we project
to fix some problem.
From untied shoes to
not enough food,
a fight with a friend
to a war with no end…
When we can’t understand both cause and effect,
frustration takes over and we start to inspect.
Imagine someone from 1914 travels to present day,
where we answer questions in a completely different way.
They see lots of effects without a subsequent cause.
A screen responds to my touch…?
they just stop and pause.
Now take someone from 2014 and put them in 1914.
Where’s my hot shower, fast food, and wifi…?
Frustrated because they know these effects don’t apply.
No matter the time period, problems exist
because we understand cause or effect, not both.
An equation that seems so simple yet
we only arrive at the answer through growth.
Not only are we solving different problems
And answering different questions,
We have a different language:
“Wanna go get some fro yo?”
“Have you listened to P¡nk?”
“Download this link.”
Technology has given us power.
The ability to connect.
Collectively reflect and project,
figure out cause and effect faster than any one person could suspect.
It doesn’t really matter if what you say is correct.
Being part of the conversation is how we intersect.
Whether conscious of it or not,
We are in the midst of the change,
Thirteen billion years after the big bang.
you are the cause.
you are the effect.
come what may
every second of every day.
