"The dream was unambiguous and in a way only possible at that level of abstraction."

It is a simple measurement really. A natural chemical is released in the body leading to what is called heart failure in this particular case. Think, stay cool or die. The precursor is like an idiot light on your dashboard (pay attention or you and this vehicle are toast).

So, when the self-anointed authority figure took the liberty of preparing to abuse a vulnerable innocent in full view of the nearby public, this person stood up and challenged the situation.

"You have no right to do that.", risking his life in the process. He went on to succinctly describe in words the gathered people could easily understand. Proving in that moment the validity of a collective moral compass.

This story would not be complete without talking about that chemical and failure of a critical organ. Standing tall for justice with conviction should not be life threatening. And so it was not, the potential was not realized nor even risked.

A smart heart, so-to-speak. Some define such as beautiful.
