Red Queen

1. The Rabit

The Red Queen Principle- this is actually an evolution hypothesis by Leight Van Veller, and it says that all species are competing though an evolutionary perspective, and the faster you run, the better you are, the more chances of survival you have. If you can’t adapt, if you are too slow, you are going to die.

Quicker or you’ll die

2. The cat

There is no mystery: we are born-we live- we die,” a light between two deaths”*. The only place you can get faster is death. For me, it seems logical, no matter how fast you run, you are going to be in the same place, your head. We build up all these intricate stories about who we are, what we are doing, and we adventure bravely into this place called reality that we filled with our fantasies. Man is a storytelling animal, and once you wake up after sleeping, you don’t stop dreaming you just change the background image, the set. The weird adventure with crabs chasing you in a desolated city goes on, but this time with “real-life responsibilities”.
