The way that can be spoken of
Is not the constant way;
The name that can be named
Is not the constant name.

Tao Te Ching

         The seed of knowns and pretexts have at my side nothing but a compensatory bulb    these are non-expositions gaining ground as it seeks further ground as it pronounces the tenor and say of what precedes    this pretext is known    it is seeded alongwith supposition    the compensation has life only when it tremors bulb-like    these are non-expositions    seeded in known ground    unknown in all ways except in what is granted supposition
