A performance of selfishness where truth is parodied. 2.

And the future scares us, so we want to be stuck in the past, and you are like a hermit crab in the shell of the past, you are warmed by nostalgia at night, and you want the thread of memories to never end.

Time is hypnosis of space associated with our subconsciousness. Creates an epiphany portal through a chain of events. 3.

It exists according to the laws of the universe and therefore lives longer than people. A form of life that is absolutely sinless. A perfect state in which you are in harmony with the universe. Man survives, but the tree lives. Because our body is very moody from instincts. The body wants a lot, but the tree wants to live. And it absorbs the energy of the wisdom of the universe into itself. In peace and humility, we know the sincerity of life. 2. We plunge through a painful rebirth and culture shock that transforms society by adding the options of a new person to a person, the technological development of a person, which will form a highly technological thinking.
