Freedom


She showed me a balloon, said it personified freedom. I asked her “why?”, “it floats around, goes wherever it wishes to, that’s why.”

But a thread knot keeps it from deflating.

There’s no absolute freedom. It’s a myth. You are tied even when you’re free.

(Have I told you the air gradually decreases and balloon comes down?)

  2. Philosophy in a balloon. There’s no absolute freedom and the balloon is nothing without it being tied with a thread. Also, it’s dependent on environmental factors like every other things around do🤷🏻

    The saddest thing that can happen to a happy child with a balloon is that it flies away… 🎈
    Happened a lot of times with me when I was little. 😂
    However, I did it on purpose to see how far it goes. And, once I realised I’m not getting it back, I did feel sad.

    This reminds me of something I learned in physics. The balloon will burst if it goes too high because the pressure in it will be more than the atmospheric pressure high up.

    I guess it dies then…

    If it floats/flies high enough it’ll burst from atmospheric pressure (I think?) 🙂

    1. Do you think a small balloon filled with helium can float that high? It’ll come down before it goes that further.

  8. You can tie a balloon knot without a thread if you don’t overfill it. Same way, one can float freely, if the weight of judgements are kept off their shoulder. And it’s okay if the air comes off after some flying. We all die anyway.

    1. The balloon is gonna run out of gas sometime later, achu. That’s the point of everything.

            1. It has a string attached but no one’s holding it. That’s why it flew away in the first place. 😃

            2. No strings. Just fill it with helium and leave her alone Chinna 😄

            3. You have to tie the knot with a string.

            4. No. Just stretch the balloon and tie a knot. Never done that?
