Someone said: “With a roof over his head and his belly full, man is the only animal that will still not be satisfied.” I forget who it was. No one famous, no close friend either. Just someone you pass every other moon or so. Or I read it in the newspaper. Might be. Definitely a place for quotes like that. Anyhow, wanting, needing, building a roof over the roof over your head seems to be a pretty good manifestation of that quote. I get that someone (the architect, the people who hired the architect, the people who paid the architect, the builders who defied the architect (that would be something now wouldn’t it, wow, hahahahaaa)) wanted to connect the old and the new and have a roof-terrace while they were at it. I bet they never even considered the outcome would be a massive symbol for that fundamental flaw in humanity: no matter who we are and where we are, we always want something more than what we need (mo money or yet a higher level of enlightenment seem to amount to the same thing, at the end of the day). Although perhaps it isn’t flaw, perhaps we are meant to exterminate ourselves eventually. Kind of in the same manner as the sun, that will grow so big in a billion years that it will incinerate our planet and later explode itself, if you believe in that sort of thing. Of course, at the rate we are going, that planet won’t be “our planet” at that point, as we will long before have gone extinct seeing as how our needs continuously and excessively outgrow our wants. Maybe, just maybe, all that is part of some great plan, and not a flaw at all.
That would be nice, somehow, and comforting as well, I think.
