Suppose we were all points in this complex infinite dimensional plane. The relationship between two persons would be described by a straight line. All interconnected relationships would lie on a common plane. Now, think about the dimensions of this plane. 2-D, 3-D, 4-D…?
In the frame of one point, there could certainly be a limited number realistic line segments. But as we zoom out of the picture and take a holistic view from a detached frame of reference, the certain becomes ever so uncertain, ever so ambiguous. We fail to identify the lines. We fail to locate ourselves.
The perils of our attachment seems to give a false perception that we can determine our trajectory, the line segments we wish to follow, the milestone we wish to accomplish in the process. And hence we find it hard to reconcile to our limitations that our attachment underwrites, that we are ultimately…
