Perception of space is relative: even in the fairest of families, personal space is defended with force; most forcibly against relatives and those who are so close that a shadow can hardly strike between them. And we wonder how we can be so cruel, so vicious, to those we love when it is the strength of the bonds that give us power. Strong attraction becomes painful, and then only the thought to repel and escape survives. We are in a race searching for oblivion only to find there that we are reduced to nothing and have lost everything but regret.
