Be a dung beetle

What do you see in this picture?

Yes, it is a dung beetle.

What do dung beetles do? They move dung so that we don’t step in it.

Do you think that dung beetles see that stuff as dung? Surely not.

What is dung to us is gold to him.

Now tell me, when you step in that stuff, do you struggle to identify it? Of course not!

That’s how it is with nonsense. You know it when it hits you.

And when it hits you, its up to you to find the sense in it.

Just like a dung beetle.
