Every day, a father would enter the sons’ room and say: “What is this?”
Day after day, year after year, he would say to him;
“What is this?” —
until the boy finally got it.
Believing that A KNOWLEDGE exists keeps you from it.
…(Yeah, it’s ratty — but that’s how it is.)
Anything that can be explained
is not part of THE UNDERSTANDING.
A man visited an Exterminator and said:
”There is one question I want answered, and that is:
why the unbridgeable gap between how
everyone says life should be and how it actually is;
can you explain this external contradiction?”
and after a silence the man said: “Well,
aren’t you going to answer me:
can you explain this contradiction?”
and the Exterminator said: “I just did.”
Getting THE UNDERSTANDING is one thing;
to keep it — stop chasing rabbits.
