There is always something behind the obvious. Always.
Itâ€™s what creates mystery and curiosity. If life were utterly transparent, many people would just check out. As Hamlet considers — do we repudiate the hurts and insults of life and take ourselves out? But what follows? Thatâ€™s the stopper. There are times when ending it is not so bad an option. The meaninglessness. The madness. The who knows what? So why do we stay?
Because of whatâ€™s behind the obvious is either compelling and we want to discover or terrifying and weâ€™re not up to the risk. The Behind-the-Obvious is the dark and light magic of life, the obsession for those who canâ€™t resist and the bludgeon for those who are bled of courage and canâ€™t act.
