"The first of the great knowings was this divide between wakefulness and sleep was illusory, that everything was a constant shift between two poles, this being within and this being without. A unified whole, in order to know itself, must find a point of demarcation, a difference by which the figure appears from out of the ground.
There is, and there is not, or there is other, we know not which. It is this knowing we seek. It is not an answer, it is the opportunity for an answer, a place in which this thought can find rest and resolve itself.
A series of loops become self-sustaining, become collectively autocatalytic, and in this circumstance where there is no gravity the object remains in frozen motion, forever.
It is not right to speak of time here. This is not that place. The snow came so heavy, and so thick, it seemed to hang in the air, like a suspended fog, and it clung to us as we passed. It is not right to call this nature; it is a place away from nature, a hidden place for hushed voices and held hands.
For there to be a me, and for that me to be here, and for there to be a you, and for that you to be there, this was unthinkable, but there it was, and here we are."
