minds without faces
binding pieces of these
and their antitheses...
they are just
[or 'that'.]

for the sexiest mind i've ever known:

Very good perspective on the duality of being. It's always a little of this and a little of that. It keeps things interesting. Very good

maybe he's talking about people who post as unknowns because they don't have any balls... he's talking about everything which ISN'T his friend, not what's in his mind. it's a single-slam i think, and meant to sting... the ambiguity of 'this or that' is shown as passive and unworthy. i read this as a gift to his friend, not a speech.

hi, JohnW.

in their most rudimentary, huh?

hello, mike.

i couldn't be thoughtful enough of the unknown, but it manifests
everywhere that i don't even have to be reminded of it. of course, that is
not to say that it -- or, they -- ultimately becomes trivial.

[well, maybe it does.]


while the mind-body dichotomy proves to be the most stable configuration
on the human level, it seems that mind doesn't have to need a face to be.
or, that great persons don't need the merits of exposure, or actual and public appearances, to be fully appreciated -- their works are all there is to them,
no matter what logical or unexpected events might follow.

'binding the pieces of these theses and their antitheses' is an absolutely
difficult undertaking, but i can't imagine all the great minds in human
history to have ever succumbed to the whims of their dwindling spirits.

you're right in reading this as a love-token or a gift of love, as the 'boy-girl'
yin-yang variety is this piece's inner motor. like always and as what everyone
already knows, a dichotomy is taken as a whole. the 'this' -- or 'that' -- is the
togetherness or oneness of 'boy & girl in love' or 'yin & yang in life or tao or the


its antithesis.

thanks always for being yourself, mike.
