Multiversal truths

July 8th, 2007

In response to “two truths” by Siona van Dijk.

At the root of paradoxes

To see the roots of a tree
you may dig (carefully), or
just close your eyes.

to see we need to move.
(This is why we often see
so clearly what is absent.)

The absence of connections
warrants the truth you may trust.

But to be free, my friend,
just keep your eyes on the trees
while you move on.

Everything is a lie

July 6th, 2007

Ratta says Everything is a lie, yeah

[Ratta utters: Whatever I say is a lie. So, what do you want me to say?]

I’ll answer later

So many questions. When will I get answers?




Oh, you my sweet little liar!

Drawing with words

July 5th, 2007

Like a painter can clear a picture by adding more strokes
we should use words to describe, explain, and clarify.

You are so negative

July 4th, 2007

Ratta says all negative might well be wrong

If you think that this here is all so very negative
you might very well be wrong. The opposite is true.

What do you mean?

July 3rd, 2007

A friend has sent me a few lines, strange lines. Actually, an answer to a question I had asked. Nevertheless, I do not understand it.
I guess, a seemingly natural reaction would be to ask

What do you mean?

And yet, it’s only a lie.
A liar’s lie.

To say we do not understand what we have just read, to ask for explanation of meaning which we allegedly failed to comprehend in the first place but pretending we would be able to understand it all if the other could just elaborate, whereas we even do not have a clue what the meaning of meaning is.


The necessity of reflection

July 2nd, 2007

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.
