I’ve taken this image for my Favicon/Avatar with permission from the artist. I’ve always liked koi but moreso after reading “Flatland” and “Hyperspace”. The latter shares the idea that fish might have scientists who wonder about the nature of their universe (the water) and what’s beyond it. Because they cannot openly pass the boundary of the water nor do they have good reason to do so they have little idea what’s outside their universe and most have no concern about the topic.
I think we’re not unlike the fish. There are the boundaries of our everyday experience and we seldom think about what’s past them. If we could break out of our everyday experience we might discover a universe greater in scale and wonder than we are capable of imagining.
