Off in the distance i heard the striking of a woodpecker. And the thing about this is that there really was no way for me to find out exactly where it was without moving. From a single perspective it is not possible to find it.
My ears can give me a rough line to it but depth is another issue.
So, to find the woodpecker I had to move to another spot so I could "triangulate" on it and get a better sense of where it was.
Is this the same thing with the meaning of life? Is it not possible to find the elusive hammering of an answer from only one perspective?
This particular riddle might be perfectly fine with me - I have no problem seeking out, finding, observing and feeling from as many perspectives it takes but..... What if all of these perspectives, in this current life as I know it are actually just one perspective?
This leads us to think that the only way to get another perspective is to cross that cloudy veil into the next. (If there even is a "next"). Hmm... For that matter what if I am the woodpecker?
