Thanks Mike. I’m Nick :-).
Sounds really intense.
So, if at some level everything is connected to everything around us, for a while I would say the universe moved out of the way to make a you shaped space. :-)
And if we are all representable as lines in time and space, there was never a break, all the way back through all line ends, to the first one. Maybe we overlap in space and time, but sometimes just in place or just in time, but we are all still here, and it’s not your fault because life is a drunkards’ walk; we are connected, nevertheless.
Pain is feeling, and feeling living, as we are.
