One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Where Does It Go?

When you brush crumbs off your clothing, pick a hair off your shirt, or dust surfaces using a brush that merely moves it to the next lower surface, most people overlook that these actions create a new layer of grime for future archaeologists to explore.

The cucumber is bitter? Put it down. There are brambles in the path? Step to one side. That is enough, without also asking 'Why did these things come into the world at all?' Because the student of Nature will ridicule the question, exactly as a carpenter or cobbler would laugh at you if you found fault because you see shavings and clippings from their work in their shops.
[Aurelius, VIII, 50]

None of these substances is a big problem, but basic cleaning should be done sensibly and completely, not just rearranging dirt to little effect and then feeling proud of the new mess that has been built.

In unawareness of what follows from one's actions, perhaps its not so bad throwing trash on your own floor, but that behavior will seem strange and antisocial when uninhibitions have you openly dirtying the floors of your friends, business contacts, and foreign dignitaries.
