I’ve been quite fascinated by the relative insignificance of human existence, the shortness of life. We might as well be a letter in a word in a sentence on a page in a book in a library in a city in one country in this enormous universe! And that kind of fear and insignificance has kept me awake at night. I feel like it must be universal. Everybody must know that somewhere.
People are in constant battle with their own understanding of natural morality and sometimes you make the right decisions and sometimes you just make the most horrific ones. And it’s amazing that even the best human beings are capable of doing that. And then obviously it gets sort of funneled back down to yourself.
