Ying: If we were autonomous bubbles, there'd be no need to worry about things outside our tiny spheres.
Dmiritri: We're not. In ways only God understands, we're connected to the entire creation.
Frida: And as the world's population soars and technology advances, those connections are getting harder and harder to ignore.
Satoru: Huh? I have no idea what you are saying. Aren't deep things better unsaid?

Conundrum

Why worry about death
when you can enjoy color TV?

Why feel concerned about militarism
if you can enjoy virtual fantasies?

Why get upset about world hunger
if you have plenty to eat?

Why be upset about child labour
if your offspring attend good universities?

Why object to environmental rape
if you have pleasing virtual landscapes?

Is it possible to feel human
unless we acknowledge sorrow and suffering?
