THE GUY IN THE BACK JUST NODS AT THE KID
like, ‘yeah you can totally sit there’
New Pope is the best Pope. He doesn’t hate on everyone who doesn’t conform to his faith. He lets tiny children sit in his big official chair. He poses for selfies. He is a good Pope and I hope he is with us for a long time.
this is actually significant because that isn’t just “the official chair.”
that’s the Holy See.
The Holy See is considered the sovereign of Vatican City. No, seriously.
Every other pope has used a throne for the Holy See. Francis replaced the ornate object with THE SAME CHAIR THAT EVERY OTHER LEADER WHO VISITS THE VATICAN USES. This was an action that created a considerable stir, as one might imagine. It was a significant remark, metaphorically, putting the pope at the same level as every other world leader. No greater a man than his peers.
And after all of that, he sees a little kid run past him and lets him sit in the freaking Holy See.
And no one stops him.
Good man. Best pope.
That kid is living the dream and the Pope is just like “Okay” and the guy in the back is like “Ye kid”
her hair looks like a moldy crocodile tail.
'The overview effect is a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts and cosmonauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface.'
Take 19 minutes to watch The Overview Effect, a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the "Overview Effect." The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment [source]. Also, keep an eye on the upcoming documentary film CONTINUUM, which was just fully funded via Kickstarter. The film about our interconnection with each other, the planet, and the universe.
