“Any fact becomes important when it’s connected to another.”
― Umberto Eco
Take any two thoughts or fancies lay them side by side and a curious alchemy takes place. Something new is born from the conflict and synthesis of the two ideas. In Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter asked the question “How is a raven like a writing desk?” and imaginations were sparked for over 100 years (tho the only answer I could come up with is that they both are carriers of thought). How is peanut butter like leaves changing colours? What does the feeling of first love share with that of deepest despair? How do we reconcile the concept that most of us in the twentieth century feel so disconnected from each other yet so many spurn even the friendliest of greetings from strangers? How does Fire relate to the idea of the New Aeon? How are you like or different from the next stranger you encounter? How are you in relation to the universe? Consider the answers to these and look at some strange juxtapositions yourself and see how your mind expands.
