In every discrete experience can be read the full boundaries of contemporary experience.
Given the fact, that in this century a rat has been set loose, is it no surprise that a connoisseur of experience should, upon encountering some ambiguity, say to her or himself "Let me smell this first?" Does she not jump, lightfooted, around those shores that would fasten her to the "whole earth" of property? When to own property comes to be twisted into joining those who would kill and maim?
Too strident. I myself do not trust such pronouncements. Let me go to the deep shade of my own precious fragments and laugh- and tremble- with my mate.
