When we drop a coin in the dark, our first instinct is to look for the nearest light (street lamp of phone flashlight) to find it.
We are victims of ignoring the obvious, yet we remain curious about what hides in the night. The problem is that we quickly search for artificial illumination to solve it.
But the initial frustration provides enough luminosity. The coin is often just below our feet; often times, we’re standing on it. It is not lost.
All we had to do was use our senses to look around first.
