People of the World

If all the people in the world were thought of as a single house, some of us would be the windows, some the lights, but most of us would be the bricks... and many of those bricks would belong in the basement, inside a wall, out of sight- so to speak. Their viewpoints would be limited, their abilities lacking, their value largely as a placeholder.

I wonder... how many windows and doors there would be in that house? Would it be all bricks and a couple of peepholes? Would it be all windows and doors? Would there be a walk in closet? Would it be half-built? Would the floors squeak?

As a thought experiment, I find concepts like this amusing. And of course, it's always fun to have another way to pick on people. The lesson seems to be to recognize, in any situation, whether you were focusing on the ideas of a light, a window, or a brick.
