The Entire History of Us
Since our kind has collective memory, we recall, at all times, the entire history of our species. So each knee we scab, each humiliation we face, each bone we break, contributes only a tiny percentage to our total experience. Nothing that happens to us is particularly traumatic, because our general trajectory is upward. We think not in moments, but in eons. A flea bite may sting a dog, but barely bother an elephant, right? So I’m sorry if this hurts you to hear, but if we break up, it’s not going to affect much in the grand scheme of things.
