Paper screen

Although today’s electronic technology is a revolution that prohibits all other revolutions, I’m thankful for bitter people, because, if people were not bitter, I myself would be bitter. What I mean is this. Whenever I see people acting crossly, I think to myself “If they’re proceeding from THAT angle, how can I myself fit into this play?—I guess I’ll be cheerful.” This is why I made my avatar an airbag.

Imagine you’re in a music band, playing a song that’s completely awful. You’ve been playing this awful song for hours, because it’s one of those compositions whose structure repeats. Although your fellow band members show no sign of stopping, you’re yearning for the song to finish – not because you dislike music; on the contrary, it’s precisely because you LOVE music that you want this song to end – the song is awful, and you want to begin a better one. This is how I feel about our world.
