" THOSE WHO NEVER SAY ANYTHING.
When I gaze closely at waterweeds, which will continue to waver inside a water tank till they wither, I cannot stop myself from feeling pity toward them. Waterweeds can do nothing but exist in their fixed spots where the water never flows until they die. `Do waterweeds have dreams?, dreams about the universe they have never seen?` To this I would anwer no, but they possess a great universe within there internal worlds. Gazing at waterweeds allows me to become concious about the universe and about my own self. "
Toshiya Kobayashi, 2001
