“The tragedy of this world is that no one is happy, whether stuck in a time of pain or of joy. The tragedy of this world is that everyone is alone. For a life in the past cannot be shared with the present. Each person who gets stuck in time gets stuck alone.”
― Alan Lightman, Einstein’s Dreams
The tragedy of this world is neither unhappiness nor pain, joy, or being stuck in time or loneliness; these are sorrows, misfortunes and events facing change. This world relishes “tragedy” and because of this the world repetitiously spins in cycles of “reason,” and ultimately without resolutions. As such, the greatest tragedies are visions imperceptible to sight.
Misfortunes offer expressions of unhappiness, pain and joy, but only dreamers could explain, and; thereby, fully appreciate these emotions, and in doing so honor time or loneliness. For time evolves loneliness and loneliness manifests comprehensive indulgences of time. Ultimately, the chasms of fear must reckon with the challenges of risk.
One must dare to seek, and learn to embrace loneliness; one must learn to find and acknowledge self. The fearful withdraw, and; therefore, remain safe. Safety is a vessel ebbing without the splendor of risks and quests of realization, and so reality dies.
Note: Below: 3×2 and A(X-B)2, /2/ reads as “squared.”
Query: Use completing the square to write the quadratic equation y=3×2+24x-27 in vertex form. Then identify the vertex. Vertex form: Y=A(X-B)2 +C.
Only dreamers would even contemplate this Quadratic Equation, they and only they would enjoy the sorrows of pain, and the sweetness of a joyful loneliness, and the tenets of time that are required and demanded of resolution. Only dreamers would care to invest TIME to REASON. (And) this process “relishes” LONELINESS and not TRAGEDY.
You see, I too am a dreamer, or a fool, for whom else could dare risk challenging the superior intellect of Einstein.
