We are lucky that certain people live on this planet.

Regardless of whether they are shape-shifting beings from another dimension or not.

Some of those shape-shifters are rather helpful.

Seb Terry is probably not from another dimension, but he is doing a rather good job at positively re-arranging the dimension in which most of us live.

He is about helping people.

The simple and effective way.

Perhaps he is from another world and brought a piece of technology that, much like a brain sensing headband combined with Google glass, he uses his thoughts to interface with reality.

Bend it.

Shape it.

Like that wooden box toy game you played as a kid, you know, the stick the square peg in the square hole game?

Which, no matter how much you tried, you couldn’t quite figure out why the cylindrical Platonic shape wouldn’t fit in that three pointed shape-thingy.

Because you were only 2 and a half.

Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Where were we? That’s right, using advanced tech from other dimensions.

Is that considered cheating if you use it to help people out?

Do we need to begin writing up policies that regulate time-travel and such things?

The simple answers: nope and nope.

If you are graced with the extra-sensory talents to travel between the honeycomb super-structures of reality, it’s only galactic industry standard that you can bring some carry on luggage. As long as it’s not more than 40 x 40 x 40 cm or over 7kg.

Fortunately, Seb keeps things simple.

We humans like that.

He simply started out with a list of things he really wanted to do and went from there.

A little selfish perhaps? Uh-uh.

Seb has a unique perspective on what it means to be selfish and how it’s not actually always a bad thing.

I suspect he means the ‘loving yourself first’ bit.

Then, most likely owing to neural mutation from passing between the agar jelly-like film that separates the multi-verse, Seb realised he liked doing things that helped other people out.

In fact, it made him rather good.

So much so, that he decided to do more of it.

Seb says it all starts by giving yourself permission to do what you love.

Then you have a feeling of wanting to help others.

Simple.

I guess it’s also a bit like the feeling of exhilaration you get when you finally think you’ve got the ‘put the wooden shape in the hole’ game cracked.

Triangle hole included.

Now go help your friends in the sandpit dig a channel, fill it with water and claim loudly to your teacher, “Miss, we’re making a river!”

You can do hundreds of things in sandpits.

I know a guy you should go see.
