The two are so intertwined, you can’t tell where one ends and the other rears its twin spine. Nestled in each other, they feed off the flesh, the bones, the robust spirit, offering themselves readily, even eagerly, hoping to be consumed so identities will blur. Biology calls it symbiosis. They don’t and couldn’t care less. Escapism and Survival, regardless of the price, must necessarily become each other.

    Let me give you a counter example. The Jews. They survived but are not escapists.

    Dagon Mir: True. Except that the target population I scribbled this about is a far cry from the Jewish situation. This snippet wasn’t meant to be an all-encompassing truth about humanity at large. Thank you for pointing out that counter-example, though. 🙂

    🙂 thank you. I knew my escapist mentality had a point – self preservation.

    Nino’s Mum: It’s also what the world’s largest movie industry counts on to survive. 🙂

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
