The Reasonable Disposition of Morning And Circular Time



Graduates: We live in a world quickly and quietly passing by. Sometimes when the birds sing their song we become a part of it. What happens is like dark matter between The two worlds. The one of Plato which is a beautiful world of measurement mechanics and mathematics, and the other of the nonplatonic world of calculus shortcuts. sometimes we join the parade in between. Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling had it as the 6th Dimension - ''the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his hopes.'' its an odd coffee on the Yaqui Way of Knowledge. Sometime as on this Kentucky Derby Day the race follows the form and the spectacle is quite beautiful.* Most usually its a stragne mix where things dont quite work out - newspaper sentences float in wind.

*In Nightmares, a lecture in Seven Nights, Jorge Luis Borges, channeling Botheus, (p.27) wrote "God sees the whole race; he sees in a single eternal instant the start, the race, the finish. He sees everything in a single glance; and in the same way he sees all history."
