Some days ago, I posted an innocent picture with a poetic caption: Counting the pixels on the pavement.
A couple of days later, I was surprised by Tensionhead's pragmatic interpretation of my original picture.
He actually counted the tiles! 6771, for the record.
I said to myself: A guy who has the capacity to give an answer to such a difficult problem is the right man to solve the questions that have been tormeting the world over the last 50 years after the construction of the Berlin wall and the Vietnam war.
In 1962, Bob Dylan wrote a ballad, Blowin' in the Wind, raising 9 essential questions remaining to be answered 48 years later.
1. How many roads must a man walk down,
Before you call him a man? 2. How many seas must a white dove sail,
Before she sleeps in the sand? 3. How many times must cannonballs fly,
Before they're forever banned? 4. How many years can a mountain exist,
Before it's washed to the seas 5. How many years can some people exist,
Before they're allowed to be free? 6. How many times can a man turn his head,
Pretend that he just doesn't see? 7. Yes and how many times must a man look up,
Before he can see the sky? 8. Yes and how many ears must one man have,
Before he can hear people cry? 9. Yes and how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
Tensionhead, you solved my problem.
But are you also able to answer Bob Dylan's 9 questions?
Are you going to solve the other mysteries of the world?
Or are you just going to blow in the wind?
Like we all do?
