The wood nymphs of mythology, in general, have seemingly been ubiquitous wherever there were trees, and well, woods.
In the stories of yore, nature, for better or worse, came upon people like a snake, a bad thing or a bad thing that was actually good, or a lover, a seemingly good or good thing that was really bad.
No syllogism, at least in the moment, can save you from stumbling into a beehive or explain spreading aloe on your burns.
It's as if the tree the hive was on or aloe near seeks to punish clumsiness or reward curiosity.
And who's to say it isn't. There is no thing which is not a metonymic thing made by man and woman. And if we are made by nature, and all things we make are metonymic, then surely, nature is esoteric. And if nature is esoteric then nature doth think.
And if nature thinks, then she feels, and dreams...and if she doth these things, but better than us, and truer, then surely there are wood nymphs even though all we blindly see are literal strings of events stuck in the medium of space/time.
"i shut the door and in the morning
it was open
Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.
Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.
I'd like to experience what it's like to be in someone elses mind for the day. Though not because I am curious about them, but because I want to know how out of whack I actually am, and if what I experience is actually abnormal or not. By comparing to other people, a standard would start to emerge.
