This absolutely makes our day. Inspired by our Desperately Seeking Symmetry episode, dozens of cellophane-clad college students celebrate the existence of everything.
Consider the original Star Trek episode of the left black, left white man. This means that they were not just opposite in color, but were fundamentally different life forms. Left life and right life. The question asked by the humanoid trekers as to why may have been fundamentally shallow. They were deeply different at the molecular level. They were incompatible all the way to the molecular level.
We on the other hand are all left life and linked together at a deeply molecular and cosmic level.
This is mind blowing. Now we are seeking assymetry and out of balance for the meaning of life.
I haved loved this show since thefirst time I heard it, and was leftcrying in someone's driveway!!Thank you so much for joy!
