onism – n. the frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time, which is like standing in front of the departures screen at an airport, flickering over with strange place names like other people’s passwords, each representing one more thing you’ll never get to see before you die-and all because, as the arrow on the map helpfully points out, you are here.
Ironically due to our connected world we’re all the more aware of the blank spots in our maps.
One thought on “Onism: how much of the world have you seen?”
