Failed attempts to get at the
truth leave behind markers to
where further investigation must
inevitably lead. Pauses are obstacles.
Rest and movement- the "eternal"
sequence. Music is the
"sound" of this "eternity" beyond
time- the breath is the breathing.
The feeling of defeat is
akin to all those feelings that arise
when someone is inextricably locked into a struggle
