Bridge over troubled opposition

Anton Yelchin’s character in “Middle of Nowhere” says, there is no up or down, just free or trapped. He’s talking about social status. Or maybe it’s: there’s no up or down, just lost or present. As soon as we start defining things in either/or the splitting starts. I wonder, what is free or trapped? You can’t be trapped if you’re not present, can you? But if you’re not present (anxiously hovering between past and future), how free are you? 

How about there is no up or down (whatever that means), just disconnected or connected?

Again, does connected mean trapped? 

So many ways of being in the world, of moving across the splittings, into the weavings of bridges.
