Introduction

Parallax
"Parallax is a displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight." (wikipedia)

It exists between the right eye and the left eye, and amongst all Human beings. Despite there being only one origin, the view changes depending on different backgrounds.
And that view, unless one interferes with one another, will always remain parallel.
The Parallax phenomenon of the right eye and the left eye, just like the three dimensional effect or the sense of distance, may be distorted.
If looked at from one point of view, misinterpretations will be present between Human being and Human being; between society and people.
This may become the norm at times. As the environment does not admit to any mistakes, this will lead to creating an unstable situation which may disguise the reality
While “to comprehend” is not as simple as it is, the only way not to lose sight of the essence, is to dig deep down and look right into the existence of Parallax, or to surrender your consciousness and immerse in the phenomenon.

Acceptance of our neighbour’s and far away people’s Parallax, including the one which exists between yesterday and today’s self, will help everyone explore the connectivity of Parallax.

Lyric

Parallax - Arpeggio

Hey, If I could run away
Hide away
I play the word of your point of view
Again and again

Hey, If I could run away
Hide away
I doubt it I rewrite the memory
Again and again

Hey, If you could fade away
Right away
I feel you with my other eye
Once again
Hey If you could fade away
Right away
I find the words with my other eye
Once again

And they believe you feel like another world
Until it breaks
And they forgive I close my eyes gently
Hide away

Can I explain the end of the day?

Into the sun

Hey If I could run away
Hide away
I play the word of your point of view
Again and again

Everything converges into what is given
Anytime
Out there you have to find a way to try again

Can I explain the end of the day?
I know how to drive a roundabout
And jumping into the river
If you want to be sober

I can hear
I wander what to say
Halfway
Half moon
In time, it will be a point

You can not read this song book
Halfway
Half moon
In time, it will be a point

Feeling slow
I feel the skyline tumbling down
We will melt
I will never surprise the shadows in your point of view
I'm talking about the end I'll never know
I'll never know them


Hey
Calm down
You have to wait
You have to wait until the water drips
