The collapsing universe
When we walk out of the doorways of perception we encounter infinity wherever we turn. And as soon as we look at it, it crystallizes. That's what they call the collapse of the waveform in quantum physics. Well, one way to keep the universe from collapsing is not to go out of the door, not to look. But with all the stars trying to burst into being at once, all the trees trying to touch the stars, all the seeds crying silently to be born, it is difficult to ignore the constant pressure of their desire. And so finally we peek out, and the multiplicity springs to birth in the womb of our eyes.
