This picture is a magnified collection of sand grains from an article confirming every grain is unique; across all the deserts of the world no two are identical. This is very much in keeping with Quantumology's version of the Uncertainty Principle, busily at work on scales much larger than electrons.
These beautiful fragments of oceanic dross are wildly varied in form, shape and colour, just as we are. If, as the uniqueness of the sand grain suggests, we are all one unique being in a vast collection of beings on a unique world, it's as well to take account of our unique lives being completely our own, unlike anybody else's, to be valued and crafted and turned into whatever we want to turn life into, because we are free to do that. Only there's no such thing as a free lunch, and everything we attain has a price attached somewhere, even if it seems to us that no payment was due. Free to look at this remarkable article it surely is, the price for our pleasure having been paid by the author who wrote it.
