“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.”
— George Elliot
We are not continuously aware of the world around us. Awareness is not a continuous process, although we think it is. We think awareness is continuous, because we’re unaware of what we’re missing.
A road feels smooth because tires roll over the holes. The ride is smooth, but the road isn’t. Our awareness is like the ride; what’s really going on is the road. This applies to how we see ourselves in the world: it’s an illusion.
