Some are observers
Some of us are observers. We observe until the end. At first I did it naturally. Later I saw this as a philosophical virtue as described by others. But is it merely some people’s nature? It is not by choice. It isn’t really practical. It is not a craft.
It resembles some people who do good. I used to think they did so for the good itself, but often it is just because they have to. Some do it because they have to please to live. For some it’s just their thing, what they do.
This shouldn't diminish the work of a good observer. It merely should add to the well of understanding from which it emerges.
