Caterpillar eggs are so small that they are difficult to see with the naked eye. Viewed under a magnifying glass, some butterfly eggs resemble miniature paper lanterns. When the appointed time comes, the caterpillar will use its sharp mandibles to cut open the paper cage, and free itself.  


The first cage can be opened by force, but the second cage? That will only open upon complete surrender.


Society has been conditioned to view death as a final outcome, when in reality, a living death is a necessary stage in the process of molecular transformation.

A large group of caterpillars will be able to decimate an entire field of crops without ever worrying about the consequences of their actions. A Caterpillar is an example of an unconscious consumer. Our world was not designed to sustain a population of 7 billion unconscious consumers.


During the transformation from one form to another, there is a stage where neither the caterpillar, nor the butterfly, can be said to exist. Here, In this vast expanse of nothingness, is where the magic really happens, and yet, nobody would ever notice the magic, unless they were really looking for it.

"Find the golden butterfly within, and you will never be without"


The metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a butterfly proves that 'life' is not contained within the form of anything, but rather, in the invisible particles that combine to create the multitude of forms that we see with our naked eyes.
