People who live in a community actively influence each other. Words, actions, comments and evaluations by people around us have an effect on us all, even if it is just a silent presence. We are endlessly changing under the influence of other people, sometimes faster, sometimes slower. Society is incessantly fermenting us. "Dependent", the entity that we create, is a state of dependency on those around us that is carried to absurdity. It develops and transforms with every person passing by. It increases in size. It turns the other way. It grows new parts. We look at it, and it looks at us in response with an even greater number of eyes. Walking past it, we don’t know what kind of changes we will provoke, but they will take place without a doubt.
