The Rubik’s cube is an analogy for our mental health, in which the depth of our emotions is reflected in how we think, feel, and behave; but, how about we complicate things? Put some stress into it by putting out the colors? What if we all had a disability known as achromatopsia color blindness where it makes us feel empty, tired, hopelessly seeing only black, white and gray in a cube full of colors despite our best efforts to fix anything. Just like in real life, it has different angles and corners, as if there’s no sign of hope with no cure for the disability. The cube still has no color but it can be helped by “One Thing”. A sign of how people would react in real life to this “something” is a factor of realization to live longer in this world, which is a “Dove” that represents the understanding of everything and whatever it may be. It could be memories, passion, goals, religion, responsibilities, loved-ones, family and all living things as well as non-living things that could be a cure or even a small contributor to mental health issues.
