THE PORTAL OF THE SPHINX

BIRTH

The first arch entered is YOUTH.

Crawling was your first moment of true freedom, the first time you were able to traverse the world on your own.

If you feel so inclined, get down on your hands and knees and crawl through this portal.

Keep fingers out of sockets and if you want to explore, please do it with your eyes instead of your mouth. 

LIFE

Through the archway we go, leading us into ADULTHOOD.

Humankind is one organism, and you are a cell that contributes to its vitality.

Walk upright.

DEATH

The third archway is right before you. Enter into AGED WISDOM.

Hobble through the portal.

Really get into that method acting, y’all!
