I imagine an entity waiting, rocking back and forth, watching the swing of the ropes. They see a good opportunity, time it just right….and jump! Sometimes they don’t even make it past the first jump, other times they find the perfect rhythm and feel like they could go on forever.
But eventually everyone tires out and either misses a jump or just signals that they’re ready to stop. They step away and take some time to rest. Meanwhile the rope still turns, waiting for them to jump in again whenever they’re ready.
