Stars… redux

I was in this class 10 cleanroom, not too long ago. There was this chart which showed how contamination was the highest near the floor and how much it decreased away from the floor. 

And then later that night, from my balcony, I looked up at the sky with its myriad stars. And I looked down below and I relaized how much we indulge ourselves in the imperfect and how perfect it looks up there. And I think, Somewhere I belong.

Everyone must look at stars, sometime. They teach you so much- only if you are willing to learn, though.

    Yes, it “looks” perfect. But you know its imperfect there too, up there near the stars.

    Perhaps, this illusion is all we need.

    @Anonymi, where do you get these goodie-goodie quotes from? You have quotes for everything I have to say! Nice one man.

    @Ritesh, Well said. But the way I see it, how can something that violent be imperfect? And last I heard, there were no human beings there!

    What is perfect, may I ask?*

    *Not a rhetorical question.

    But then, the Greeks will ask: What is fake? And the Hindus will turn it around and ask, what is real?

    And we will all bite our teeth. That will be prefect and fake and real.

    Sorry, K. I suck the pleasure out of simple things by doling out pretentious garbage. It’s my new hobby.
