Maybe Babylon could be described as a huge fear that is come amongst us humans. One great mass of fear echoing perennially and continuously throughout the population. And it’s twisted us and reproduced itself by making monsters of us to various degrees–made us people who have reacted to our fear by learning to use fear against others. I think we all probably do it a little bit. It is so common in our world to find people acting in this way that it’s hard not to internalize it a little bit even as we attempt to cease to act that way as an essential part of beginning to undo this collective fear.
