Narcissus Picture

In Greek mythology, the son of the river god Cephissus and the nymph Leiriope; he was distinguished for his beauty. His mother was told that he would have a long life, provided he never looked upon his own features. His rejection, however, of the love of the nymph Echo or of his lover Ameinias drew upon him the vengeance of the gods. He fell in love with his own reflection in the waters of a spring and pined away (or killed himself); the flower that bears his name sprang up where he died.

In psychiatry and especially psychoanalysis, the term narcissism denotes an excessive degree of self-esteem or self-involvement, a condition that is usually a form of emotional immaturity.

This one is very meaningful to me, I believe it mirrors the way we all live our lives (with rare exceptions). We simply don't give a damn about each other anymore, we seek pleasure and are unnable to sacrifice. Maybe our fate will be the same as Narcissus'. Until then, we contemplate ourselves as the world colapses.
