“It’s a good thing Jesus never came back,” Craig once told me, “Otherwise we’d have people walking around with little gold electric chairs around their necks.”
You’d have to know my childhood friend and alter ego to understand the context of this kind of statement. There wasn’t any. It might come off as cynical or just silly, but the Big Perspective simply isn’t something people ever can really handle. It takes gobs of time contemplating the universe and letting the moments form themselves, much like a lazy mis-spent childhood.
