One thought does not simply "lead"
to another thought. When a thought
is "heard" more resonantly, it
sets up a resonant "strumming"
across many latitudes of inner
experience. These "strings"
or modalities, spread like nets
across wide areas of inner life,
encompassing countless "points":
nuances, memories, hungers, fears,
wishes. Yet, at certain times, a
thought or feeling leaps across
all boundaries of sense and sensing,
interconnecting and interweaving
innumerable aspects of experience,
yet encompassed in some specific
sequence of words.

Note from a journal, 1976:
"All substances have their trick."
