An owl observed a group of animals following a star and started to follow the group. The star took everybody to the birth of a little sheet. The animals approached the little sheet full of hope, but the owl thought:
“It is only a little sheet that will grow and will be subordinated by the politics of the animals"
The owl flew in silence,saw another group of animals following the same star and followed them too. The star took the new group to another birth. Everybody approached a little goat full of hope, but the owl thought:
"It is only a little goat that will grow and will be sacrificated by the politics of the animals"
The owl flew again and saw no one else following the star, but observed that the star continued on its way.
