Imagine yourself as a child. You may have built towers out of wooden bricks. Once it was finished (mostly because you were out of bricks) you took out some bricks and with joy you saw how it was destroyed. You didn’t care that it was gone. You enjoyed seeing your tower crumbling away. Just imagine yourself in such a situation [again]. Now scale it up proportionelly to the lenght you have now. This time you donĀ“t pull out the bricks, just touch. It falls apart. Then…suddenly it comes up again!
