White Lie - Project "O"

This is about an analogy.Challenging human intimacy that is called the hedgehog's dilemma. It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share heat during cold weather. They must remain apart, however, as they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp spines. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur for reasons they cannot avoid.


from NEUTRALISM, released December 11, 2014
