We judge by appearance because it requires a lot less energy and conviction, and it doesn’t make us vulnerable in the process. If we were to look too closely, we may acquire the responsibility of caring and that is far too daunting in a soul-less world. So let’s stare from afar, judge without knowledge, and hide the essence of ourselves so that we can maintain our defenses, existing until it’s too late to be discovered. And then dying regretting that we weren’t.
