The Bubble (Part 2)

All of us live inside a bubble. It’s a psychological and sociological necessity. Like eyesight or a camera lens, things within the bubble are in focus and everything outside is slightly blurry. The bubble protects our tiny brains from overloading with too much noise and action, which could make it impossible to focus on anything at all. But sometimes – just sometimes – we let things stay out of focus intentionally because they’re scary, or unfamiliar or require us to take responsibility. If a problem is far enough away, we can pretend not to see it.

The question is, in our society today, can’t we choose anything in the world to include in our bubble?
