What does the porcupine say?

Existential optimism in the corona times. Take 2.

You might or not have heard of the Porcupine(hedgehog) dilemma, by the German philosopher Artur Schopenhauer. In this spontaneous video, I am sharing with you an optimistic interpretation of it, which I find specially relevant as I've been reflecting upon the current crisis//opportunity that the emergence of the coronavirus represents for us.

I'd love to hear what your perspectives of the porcupine dilemma are, specially nowadays.

Any ideas on how to make these spontaneous sharing more available to people, as well as tricks on how to improve the quality of these homemade videos are welcome.
