     On first reading, I resonated with "we participated with numerable other players and causes and this is what emerged --------absurd heroism."  

    But I find myself tied in the paradox of parts nestled in the whole that is constantly expanding. Can the parts have an existence removed from the whole.  Human imagination keeps emerging to deal with the minuscule and vastness and absurd heroism at core may be individual and  collective responsibility inherent in our imaginations.  Our evolutionary development has both an inner and outer awareness and so we find ourselves grappling with both micro and macro aspects of our world.
