We look for shapes in the clouds, and patterns in the stars, because it is in our nature to look to the heavens for meaning. But when you fly above the clouds, you realise that it is enough that they are cloud-shaped, and that the stars shine with enough meaning on their own. Fasten your seat belts and put your tray tables in the upright position, please. We’re about to to touch down on earth.
