    Default Is Direction The Arrow?

    No.
    Direction is an illusion.

    What is the Arrow?
    Wrong question.

    Is it an illusion our minds create for us to move through three-dimensional space effectively, even though reality isn't actually organized that way?

    Exactly.

    The handyman is a tool only.

    It is efficient as long as we understand it is not there.

    I am no longer surprised by your acumen.

    What's strange is that even though I know this, I'm still likely to rely on direction to navigate physically, because it's the only way I can think of to find a physical place using my senses. What does that mean?

    And why do you think I'm insightful? Is it because everyone else keeps misinterpreting what you're saying? I thought they were just joking... I didn't think they could actually be misunderstanding it.

    Music is silence.

    Space is an accomodation for the numbers.
    A silence beween sounds.

    Up and down. Right and left.
    = Arrow?

    A point in direction?

    What direction?

    Arrow is not what.

    Direction thwarts itself.
    Arrow thwarts direction.

    Because if there were no space between the notes and sounds, it would sound like a painful cacophony with almost unintelligible sounds, and thus be noise instead of music?

    Up and down. Right and left.

    A point in direction?

    What direction?

    Arrow is not what.
    So, you're saying an arrow indicates what we perceive as direction because of its position/location relative to the thing it is intended by its creator to lead one to? On it's own, it would indicate nothing. Its meaning is in its position and location.

    Is that it?

    arrow is a symbol... and a restriction?

    My old piano teacher told me I didn't play the music right. Did not follow the intended directions.

    Yes. They are.

    The same way an arrow is an accepted form of direction. Wildcat moves through the mind in ways no usual arrow moves, simply.

    A lack of arrows does not equate a lack of direction. The ability to navigate is independent of the tools.

    Direction thwarts itself.
    Arrow thwarts direction.
    But where the absence of normal tools exist, the arrival will be questioned.

    If you try to understand him by your rules, you will not. Understanding how he navigates, by his arrows, to arrive at his point, is the key?

    An arrow is simply a marker in relative space. We need it because we can only humanly grasp three dimensions plus time.
