Red Hurts

The more I see of life, the more I become convinced collaboration holds the key for humanity. I mean, it's so obvious when you see a movie, a whole bunch of people subsuming themselves for a single vision. Or take reading this, for example. I'm writing, you're reading, yet imagine how many people collaborated to make this happen, beginning with our first grade teachers (and earlier!) – Even terrorists rely on collaboration, though they're probably too dimwitted to get it. And everybody else. Are they really living to be consumers, or plagiarists, or greedy capitalist pigs? Or are they living to be of use to other people? I believe this is the root and motivation for real mysticism.
