We divide into capsules. A capsule is hard to get into. But once you’re in – you’re in. You feel secure. You belong. We define ourselves through them. We understand who we are. What is actually – home.
We belong to our family, to a group of friends. Many of us choose to live in pairs. This choice defends us from a cold world of loneliness, a world where no one has our back. A world where you eat alone, sleep alone, age alone, get sick alone.
At times we don’t agree with what happens in the capsule. Will we manage to find ways to resolve disagreements? What will happen if we choose not to? Will we not belong anymore? And if we won’t belong, who will we actually be? When we remove all the things we consider our home, what is left of us? What is left from our naked soul, if at all a thing like this exists.
