Did you know that there is a “twinkle star” in almost all pages of a magazine or a newspaper? Small or large; in pink, white, black or any such color. I did not know that either, until recently Meow pointed it out.
While all I can see in the pages is only the celebrity, the writings, an advertisement or a bunch of photographs, the only thing Meow sees are the twinkle stars. They are all over in fact; behind the celebrity on the background screen, at the edges of the articles, on corners of the advertisements – everywhere. Try it for yourself when you pick up a magazine next time. You will never be able to un-see it.
It gives me something to ponder about the quests we have in life; we are always looking for something that is right in front of our eyes; yet we choose to ignore it due to the overwhelming amount of knowledge(read noise) around.
We only focus our attention on things we know and what we know & choose to know accumulates over time making us ignore/forget what we were looking for in the first place, much like the answer 42 from Hitch hiker’s guide to the galaxy.
For now, Meow only knows about “twinkle stars” and I am happy for her.
