The Fool: Astoundingness.
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

I asked myself this and a few thoughts came to mind....

1) Everyone/I will die
2) Something exists
3) Consciousness exists
4) The world sucks monkey balls

That the closest point to Hawaii on the U.S. mainland is Point Arena, about a hundred miles north of San Francisco.

I've never been able to fully cope with that.

The most astounding fact which I can come up with is, our unawareness and ignorance regarding our self. We always becomes so much conditioned and accustomed to our surrounding, society and our repetitive life that we never questions to our self, that why this world has become like that? till we do not get unhappiness from this world. !!! Suffering triggers our consciousness to ask the question about the reality.
