time flies

i was eating pizza and saw a fly. i thought about how a fly's lifespan is 24 hours. thinking about this short life made me think about how short our average lifespan is. there are turtles that live for hundreds of years.

i thought about how little i knew and how little i will know for the rest of my life. there was a baby fly too. the pizza place was most likely the only space that the fly would live in; much like earth is the only space that we will live in for the foreseeable future. of all the knowledge and experience that exists in the universe, we will only know a small if not fractional amount. the naivety of some humans.

pizza tasted good though.
