I have an issue with this "square peg in round hole" idiom that's so prevalent in english. It seems to me that it is - like a lot of other things (such as maps) - entirely upside-down.
You are not a square peg
trying to fit a round hole.
They are square boxes
desperate to contain
an expanding sphere.
Labeling someone a square peg carries with it the notion of being rigid and inflexible (in opposition to a round, intelligently designed environment?). How could that be? The very fact that you are reading something off a website like this (which no one was doing just a generation ago) contradicts the idea that you might be a square peg. Someone inflexible is the opposite: not exploring new concepts but resisting them. Someone inflexible would not be reading these words, they'd be running a corporation as if it's still 1922, or ruling a serfdom as if it's still 1322, or planning the expansions of Rome as if it's still 722, or grunting at women as if it's still 69,222 B.C. - the really square pegs are still assuming that people can't read and have no clue. All they do is build boxes, so they can feel more at home being square pegs. And so all the time they worry about how hot, new, round ideas will threaten their cold box.
They made even the environment square - desolate. Square people with square ideas built straight grids of roads and houses and shopping malls and skyscrapers, for other squares living in squares. And to rule their boxes they build pyramids in steps, to sit at the top.
Small children with no fear, that are simply happy while looking at flowers, or listening to birds say yes, are what's round. Smiling eyes are round. Love is round. Nature is round. Circles perfection. Spheres without fears fit anywhere, because they can be all sizes. All problems around round surround the boxes they try to impose around round (and the icy waters underground).
Inside round, the pyramids are made of quantum particles taking leaps. There is no direction, but every direction - no steps, but an endless path.
