Unreality

"There is a bird in a poem by T.S. Eliot who says that mankind cannot bear very much reality; but the bird is mistaken. A man can endure the entire weight of the universe for eighty years. It is unreality he cannot bear."

Ursula K. LeGuin, The Lathe of Heaven

there is truth here, but I must ponder. More thoughts later, maybe...
