I am sitting at a table and I am looking at a map. How do things look on this map? Very clear and peaceful, and uncomplicated. I can't see any signs of life- no traces of human suffering- just a surface, showing outlines of different places. What am I thinking? I am thinking that this is wonderful and I point with my finger to a place on this map (any place, it doesn't matter where!) and I say, 'See this place, doesn't it look good? I want to live there. Tell me, what do I have to do to get there? I am prepared to do anything'.
