Makes you think…


The Universe has as many different centres as there are living beings in it.  Each of us is a Centre of the Universe…

Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago, p. 3

This means that while I am looking at you thinking that I’m the Centre of the Universe, you are looking at me thinking that you are – and everybody else in the room/world thinks it’s them.

This makes sense of lots of human attitudes when you think about it…

I'd really like to hear what you have to say...
