15. We find ways to master ourselves through first showing self-knowledge, second showing its impossibility, third, regarding ourselves as funny little things among other things, each circling the other, discretely, but with permeability. It’s only funny ha-ha half the time.
16. We find that just as there is a strange membrane between everything we touch and experience, the same goes with ourselves, and so we try to arrange these membranes and moments of distance as lyrically as we can, not to defeat mediation, but to make ourself new, out of what is already there. The carbon told tales to the teller but never got past the initial seller (cellar).
17. We find that as we continue pulling from the past, we must make borders, we must play games, we must draw and erase, we must delineate, garden the way we see ourselves as it will always both constitute something very solid and something very momentary. The water was deeper than we thought.
18. Sometimes, what we’re able to find is so heavily dependent upon how the world can be seen that we must try to look for new ways to see things and new ways to do things and new ways to say things, all so we can then go back to interrogate once more. Once there were 9 planets.
