    because it is not lines. it is circular---in that sense, there is in effect no 'side'---sides to take (perceptions) only occur, perhaps because people are at diametrically opposite ends of the circle.

    but if one walks long enough along the line, if one explores far enough,it all leads back.

    brilliant. thanks, wildcat.

    Edit: yes. To play is greater than not to play. Plato was right: "You learn more about a man in an hour of play than in a year of work."
    Exactly.
    It all leads back to the one mirror.

    The mirror only reflects what is.
    Where?
    In the front.
    There is no side.
    Except the play side.
    The ludus.

    Thank you, elfie

    I wonder if Leechen would appreciate the Disney version of the Grimm tale of The Snow White. You know. Or whatever it is in English.

    The Princess, the Step mother and the Mirror.

    People always look back. To reflect?
    Does the mirror look back?
    The mirror always looks in the front.

    Where do the ends meet?
    At the center?
    On the other side?

    Yes.. there on the other side..
    Where is there?

    There is nothing behind the mirror.

    Wildcat! You mentioned "I think, therefore I am". I am most disappointed

    I think, therefore I think. It requires the I to be there in the first place and therefore is no indication of the existence of the I past that statement.

    In terms of objectivity, there can be no true objectivity only compromise and probability. Plus all things reflect upon all other things, to my mind. If everything is interconnected (as is most often, if not always, the case) then is it not subjective to look upon only one thing?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Is the I there in the first place?
    Indeed, is it there at all?

    All is one.

    *munches her popcorn while waiting to see Xander's reply*

    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    the spirit, elfie.
    the spirit only of albinoni

    Remo Giazotto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Incidentally, my Uncle Paul studied violin in the mystery city. His father taught at the Conservatoire.
    Odd pieces shift hands.
    Or then not.

    The Saxon State Library was destroyed by the Allies during the so called Fire Night. One of the worst mass murders in history. Giazotto received the original piece (the bass thing of Albinoni) there..
    Or then not.

    A something that had never showed up.
    Curious
    Ingenuine
    Remarkable
    Happy Ending

    I saw the Welles thingie in 1962.
    A baroque experience. The ancient railway station of the pearl city.
    Elsa Martinelli and the Moureau woman. Welles himself, a fat cigar in his mouthie.
    Some things you never forget.
    The Adagio for Youth.

    Anyway, on the way home from the cinema house, my father said:
    - That Perkins chap was a great hero.
    In reality, people are afraid. There are very few people.. ever.. who stand up. -

    Aye. But there are some

    You tell such wonderful stories, wildcat.

    Yes, there are some. There will always be some. This is what being an anarchist means.

    Precisely. Also if the site would have loaded earlier you'd have got the response sooner!

    I was just checking you weren't supporting a certain scientist pretender to the title of philosopher.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
