It’s like being in a maze, where you turn a corner and run right into a brick wall. So you know that that’s not the way, and you turn about and go a different way.
Due to the height of the walls of the maze, it’s impossible to get any perspective on anything. You only know where you are at this point in time and space.
This is not the kind of maze you spend all of your time trying to find your way out of. On the contrary, we are trying to find our way in.
