Raven 155: Pores

The boundary between imagined self and imagined others is shot full of holes. Through which compassion flows, becoming compassion.

Case
One day Badger came by for a private chat. "What is the source of compassion?" he asked.
"Pores," said Raven.
"How are pores the source of compassion?" asked Badger.
Raven said, "There are small pores in between the big ones."
Badger asked, "What do the pores do?"
Raven said, "There are littler pores in between the small ones."
Badger said, "And so on, I suppose."
Raven said, "Not much left, after all."
