Is it 5 elements or 5 movements?
which do we chose to put as the head of the category? Wood, Fire, Water, Metal, Earth? Or is it Up, Down, In, Out and Center? Or Generative, Stabilizing, Expansive, Contracting and Conserving?
the lenses we use to think about what we see
cause trouble, confuse, and differentiate where none exist
all of life, all of perception is a question of lens.
lens creates meaning
but meaning is already there
or, what is already there is there
because life is a system
and a system contains many things
and each thing in a system relates to an other thing in the system
and those relationships are a thing too
Not a solid thing
A changing dynamic thing
Are lenses a changing and dynamic thing?
How do we change lenses without going mad?
How do we retain familiar thingness within ourselves while being sensitive to the changing dynamic thingness of all the other things?
