Folks from the flight deck.
This is your Captain speaking.
You’ve boarded flight 1.
With non stop service to NOW.
So turn to the person next to you.
And say hello.
Because they’re alive.
Just like you.
And your podcast is nowhere as important as genuine human interaction.
Nowhere as valuable as eye contact.
Nowhere near as significant as the human being (the most cognitively advanced organism in the known Universe) sitting right next to you.
As a reminder:
You were born human.
The odds of which are statistically incalculable.
And we are all deeply connected.
Sometimes we just need to remove the earbuds to notice.
