what of those we see but never speak to? those who fill momentary daylight dreams and the twilight consciousness before sleep conquers us? do they see us? do they dream of who we might be, of what we are and are not? do they wonder how fast our hearts beat or how we spent childhood summers? do they imagine shame or our deepest miseries? do they spend the twilight of their consciousness dieing with us into old age? as we have done so many times.

twilight fades with the memory of strangers.

Anthropologists have determined that the human brain and mind have the capacity to know and visualize and be loyal to about 150 people, max. That is your tribe; all others are "other", imagined and appreciated, ignored, or hated in lumps. So strangers are accorded very little computation and storage space, it seems.
