The great 19th century philosopher Schopenhauer... he said, at that moment, when a human sees another human in danger... that there's this breaking in of metaphysical awareness. Do you know what that awareness is, Gloria?
Gloria Cleary
What?
Jeremy Grey
That we're all one. That separateness is an illusion. And that I'm one with everyone. With the prime minister of England and my cousin Harry. You and me. The fat kid from What's Happening! The Olsen twins. Natalie Portman. The guy who wrote Catcher in the Rye. Nat King Cole. Carrot Top. Jay-Z. "Weird Al" Yankovic. Harry Potter, if he existed. The whore on the street corner. Your mother. We're all one.
Gloria Cleary
