« Now nature is not at variance with art, nor art with nature, they being both servants of his providence: art is the perfection of nature; were the world now as it was the sixth day, there were yet a chaos; nature hath made one world, and art another. In brief, all things are artificial; for nature is the art of God. »

― Sir Thomas Browne

"... the Undying were weighed down by the huge burden of the past, each locked into a separate world.

... The present is just a surface bubble of sensation surrounding a great bubble of memory. You forget how to see, to hear; you forget how to talk to people. You forget other people even exist. You sink inwards into yourself, thinking about the past. Living on and on without end."

I wonder why the Mastodon web interface only displays the first frame of webp animations.

Is this a general thing or just one more of the arbitrary limitations?
