How does the shown object point to a better world?
This is the dome of the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque at Naqsh‑e Jahan Square in Isfahan, Iran, which I was allowed to visit in 2017. It became a dream. It is enchanting, beautiful. It is universal, divine, perfect. Here it does not matter if or what someone believes, where someone comes from, what someone does. I cannot imagine that there is anyone in the world who would not be amazed, admired here. I.e. they connect. The people, the cultures. In all their diversity. We are one.
This is how I imagine a better world:
For me, a better world would be a world in which people were at the centre. Not the will to power of some, the desire of one to dominate the other, the belief in one’s own better-than-other. Not to be against each other, but to be with each other. There would be no wars, no hatred. We actually have more in common than differences. Skin colour, religion, gender have no meaning, are taken for granted and do not serve as a basis for differentiation or evaluation. We care about the things we can influence for the better. Everyone tries to contribute according to his or her abilities.
respect. In the end it is always about respect. Respect for the other person. Human beings. Animal. thing. nature. Respecting the other and perceiving him as equal. The strong help the weak without wanting to take advantage of them or feeling superior to them. To be careful. Reason and empathy set the cornerstones.
