Scales, rituals, angles and lines. Struggling to make sense, instead of staying on the ground. Design, construct, infer, deduce. Climb that ladder. Circle that ring. Aching for a view. We’re earthed here. But we keep on grasping. Incessantly. Invent equations, theorems, rules and laws. Apply to sensation and perceive. Revise. Repeat. Try numbers, letters, words. Try gesture. Communicate. Calibrate. Be social. Get everyone to make the hike. We make sense by making abstractions. Distractions. Bastardizing metaphor. Some things go deeper, some things go out.
