Möbius Rex: Hot Springs

It's eerie, the way infinity seems to curve and twist back on itself in a loop, visible as the passing events of life and history. It's almost mesmerizing to consider your past, your present, your future, and to see it sweep out in front of you like lapping waves or the rising and falling geographies of the earth, moving in patterns. The waters of a lake or the sea, or mountain ranges and canyons, apparently one thing in themselves, visible, physical manifestations, but all moving in accordance to underlying energy patterns in nature.

The aspiring artists and entrepreneurs who've spent the first quarters and thirds of their lives reading book after book about their craft and trade, trying to learn how to live through the buffers of instruction manuals, without having taken a single step. The children of online self-help and routine inspirationEcho and Narcissus made one.
