Dead Bear Obsession Threatens Reality
T.S. Eliot wrote “Humankind cannot bear very much reality.” Four out of five people are obsessed with dead bears and see them everywhere.
A friend, frozen with fear, sits silently in the dark outside of his garage as an 800 lb dead black bear walks past. A mother chased down a forest path and through a swamp by a dead mother bear and her cubs. A child is terrified by a dead polar bear rising from a pool of chlorinated water. And the turtles just watched.
