Shallowness

A journalist one day asked the Master to name one thing that characterizes the Modern World.
The Master unhesitatingly replied, “People every day know more and more about the Cosmos and less and less about themselves.”
And to an astronomer who held him spellbound with the wonders of modern astronomy the Master suddenly said, “Of all the millions of strange objects in the universe the black holes and quasars and pulsars? the strangest, unquestionably, is the self!”
