Listen! Listen! Listen quickly, there's no time!
There is a beach, I don't know where, and on the beach a crab is crawling up the sand. The waves come in - whoooosh! - and wash the crab out to sea. There is wisdom here, listen! He crawls back.
Somewhere else, an ant carries sand. She piles her grain with the others - so many others! - and there is wisdom in this. Listen! A boy, a small boy, he watches, and when the anthill is complete, he jumps - crash! - and kicks it away. The ants carry it back.
Listen, listen to me! Won't you listen?
