Some people love what they can’t have or what is unattainable and are bored of what they have or the attainable. Coming from a business standpoint people are always wanting what is new, the best and people are willing to pay large amounts for new technology or what is unattainable. This passage reflects on topics that are considered unattainable such as mercy, space, time, past and what happens when it is attainable.
Mercy is compassionate treatment of or attitude towards an offender. Mercy is rare the logical way of thinking is taking revenge or getting even with an offender. Mercy cannot be attained by effort. Everything depends on the eternal and the unattainable will be bestowing mercy. There is nothing gained when bestowing mercy.
Space and time are the modern dimensions of the unattainable but when there are historical events such as landing on the moon space is no longer unattainable. Landing on the moon has already taken place so it is attainable and undesirable. Another example is the past which is considered unattainable. There is no way to turn back the time so people can use art to portray the past. People have to be able to identify and connect to the art.
This analysis touched upon many topics but what stuck out to me was the idea of wanting what you don’t have. The unattainable that would like to share its preciousness with everyone that swings up or bends down to the obligatory attainable, can only register the following with reluctance or malice. What is attainable is no longer interesting the value on a rare or extinct animal is greater because it is unattainable.
