Pass me the remote

“Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years.

No one would sleep that night, of course.

The world would become religious overnight.

We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God.

Instead the stars come out every night, and we watch television.”
