"Just look at him up there," Stubblefield went on, as in the distance the solitary figure jumped through a hoop and landed back on the nearly invisible wire. "What you’re seeing is the perfection of a conscious act of craziness. What you’re seeing is pinpoint focus combined with mad abandon in such a way as to cause the specters of death and the exaltations of life to collide at some kind of crossroads. The sparks that fly from that collision are like little shards of God. If you can hold them in your mind for more than five seconds, you can understand everything that ever was or will ever be."
