    Smile The Thing

    Do you measure the thing?
    You measure what manifests of the thing.

    Does the thing manifest?
    No.

    What do you measure then?

    Hm, yeah, it's deep question, I've been thinking about it but nothing comes on my mind. I'm looking forward to meaningful answers

    No.

    Why this hurry to measure?
    To capture, or, to free?

    What is the thing?
    Did you create it?
    Or, will you destroy it?

    The need.
    The hunger.
    For tangibles.
    Hush doubt.
    Elate
    CONFIRMATION.


    The thought propels.
    Manifests.
    It becomes
    a
    the
    THE
    my
    thing.

    Looks more like a logic excersize to me.

    I've always held that we measure our perceptions.
    But those aren't things. They're non-things.

    the shadow it leaves or the space that's missing perhaps?

    it's ok- you can go ahead and be depressed by the numbers now Costrin- some NF will come and hug you and make you quit crying

    Costrin enjoys NF hugs in small doses.
