Viata bate filmul, nu-i asa? Nu stiu de ce, ne traim viata sub zodia eternitatii. Ne traim viata ca si cum vom fi aici cel putin 5000 de ani! Poate ca numai astfel stim sa traim. Poate daca am trai cu sabia lui Damocles deasupra capului, n-am putea sa facem un pas inainte, pe linia vietii. De fapt, asa si traim, doar ca mintea noastra a gasit un tric s-o faca, de cele mai multe ori, invizibila.
