- Transportation has long been an important part of human existence.
- He who invented wheels, was a genius.
- Those wheels became, not only a necessity of life, but also a means of learning about the world. They helped man map out continents, make history with great geographical discoveries, master the American prairies, and tame the wild expanses of Asia and Africa.
We live by sensations and that of flying (or the desire
to be airborne) is a powerful stimulus. It bolsters our
sense of the high speed of life. Anyone having a flight
of fancy knows it feels like taking off – sometimes referred
to as wings sprouting from my back.
The dragonfly steering a motorbike – and glowing
to the point of being one with it – is a metaphor for
someone flying through the vastness of surrounding
space and breaking the bonds of the mundane.
