He looks as if he is peering out through a hole in the belly of the machine. I find that quite enlightening as it so often feels that the way we are 'programmed' to behave is outside our control - the machine that we made of ourselves becomes huge and uncontrollable, and we are unable to take a step back and relook and rethink. It is exhausting to keep that machine going, and oiled, and smooth. How much better to take time to think and behave outside of the box. Literally in this case!
If a man who lives through conscience becomes hard, he will only break under pressure and exhaustion. There is no room to manoevre and be different. The man who lives through consciousness will be soft - he can bend, and shape himself differently, and react differently.
