I am fascinated by the imposing nature of the city around me. The city is my prison, yet I feel no hostility towards it. It comforts me. I feel a conflicting mix of emotions. I value freedom, yet I voluntarily imprison myself here. Modern life, with its ever increasing connectivity and population, is like being a single cell within a huge creature. I lay down on a clear, moonless night and look up. The sky, so heavy with stars, presses me into the ground below. I look out into an infinite plane which I’m unable to reach and I know my insignificance. In the loss of control I find liberation. Similarly, when I move among innumerable buildings, when I ride the trains with millions of others, I transcend the physical limitations and feel spiritually connected to something much bigger than myself. Insignificant, yet still a part. This is the paradox. So, unlike a bird, who actually understands freedom, we cage ourselves voluntarily.
