Nature hardwires us with all sort of complex emotions pouring out of our base ego. Then it say I don’t give a crap about how you feel. I just give you this stuff in order to force to push on and perpetuate your species. Thus we become baffled and depressed at the nothingness of it, until, that is, we learn to accept this simple organic truth.

Indeed, there is no magic that does not flow from our own imagination, and that can be enough if you let it.
