Vortex Mechanic • Expansive Lives

Our lives are passing like water through fingers. We live each moment as if there is an eternity ahead, as if there is an entire ocean of life inside us and it will never end. We have neither time nor energy to stop and understand, realize our own life... By expanding our knowledge, we expand our capabilities, which means we expand our lives... Is human life really just a moment against the background of eternity? Is humanity really insignificant in its existence and its lives? What should happen to humanity, how should it expand its existence to the level of the Universe? We live in small joys, everyday life – happy and unhappy at the same time. We burn our lives and go into oblivion...
