This piece emerged after reading about solipsism, or the theory that only the self exists. While this is an interesting theory, it does not explain where the mysteries and surprise come from in life. Thus, we must exist in something bigger, more vibrant, and constant that exists beyond ourselves. This piece illustrates not only our existence within the outside world, but also our existence with the creativity that allows us to perceive ideas and theories as obscure as this one.
