It’s amusing to hear people say, “That’s just not normal,” as if humans have an established baseline for normalcy. 20 generations ago, we were on the cusp of worldwide exploration and science. The illusion of consistency is the trick your mind plays on you when you forget that human history tells us otherwise. While you might want things to get back to normal, the truth is that normal is a moving target. Your feet are on quicksand every moment of your life. Like a perspective painting, you’ll only know this to be true if you pause long enough to find yourself astonished by how obvious it is.
