You are the center and the circumference. The center of you would presumably be some atom behind your navel. Somewhere in the center of that atom is a whole mess of subatomic particles and so on and so forth. It works the other way as well because you are also the circumference. You don’t end at your skin, you extend infinitely outward with your sphere of influence. Across great distances and between the smallest of spaces, you exist. You are both of the earth and on it. Same subatomic particles at the center of you are also at the center of the earth. Just as you extend beyond your skin, the earth extends beyond the crust. It includes the wind and the sky. Beyond the edge of the sky, earth’s gravity influences spheres across the universe. You are both the center of the universe and the reason the universe exists. This is a heavy burden.
I am the center and the circumference. I am the center of the universe and the reason the universe exists. Across great distances and between the smallest spaces, I exist. We started as the same stardust. At the center of me (somewhere behind the navel) is the same subatomic mess of goo that also is found at the center of you and the center of all things. We are of the earth and on it. You are there, at the center. I am here, at the center. The space between is yours. The space between is mine. The space between is heavy.
Think of all the things you describe as yours. Your life, your, time, your house, your job, your contribution, your sacrifice, your money, your taxes, your vote, your voice, your choice, your consequence. These are yours. They are also mine. My life, my time, my house, my job, my contribution, my sacrifice, my money, my taxes, my vote, my voice, my choice, my consequence. These are mine. They are also yours. What’s yours is mine. What’s mine is yours. This is a heavy burden.
You are here with my things. I am there with your things. Across great distances and in between the smallest spaces, we are.
You are the center and the circumference. My burden is yours.
I am the center and the circumference. Your burden is mine.
