Smoke and Mirrors

This funny video, 'How to gift wrap a cat' brings home to me how all of life is smoke and mirrors.
With different background music and normal film speed, we could have, very easily, been led to believe that the cat thinks he is being dressed for coronation.

But a life built on illusions may not be as bad as it sounds--we live it everyday, at different levels, and for the most part, with good intentions. Sometimes we are not even aware of the illusions we have accepted as part of our life. Even in this video, both man and cat may well be deceiving each other, but both are symbiotically happy. And perhaps, that's all that matters in the end.
