They said this mystery never shall cease

“Every thing possible to be believed is an image of truth”

– William Blake

getsaFrom this, without doubt, sprang the fable. Man created it thus, because it was not given him to see more than himself and nature, which surrounds him; but he created it true with a truth all its own.
– Alfred de Vigny

“Whoda believed it”?

That is what I have said more times than one could count upon the fingers of the floating head’s new body’s hands. Is that clear enough for you? I hope so because I have no intention of repeating it. Why should I?

Bzzzt!

Time’s up, you didn’t answer quickly enough. The answer you couldn’t quite give is, “There’s no good reason”. I have a feeling you knew this, but, were afraid to utter the words aloud. Frightened like a child who thinks it some incantation that if they speak it a horrible curse shall descend from out of the fathomless reaches of space and time destroying all they ever have or ever will know.  Perhaps sadly, this will not be the result. So, go ahead. It’s no big deal. Say it. Out loud. Right now. “There’s no good reason”. Again. “There’s no good reason”. AGAIN! “There’s no good reason” LOUDER! “THERE’S NO GOOD REASON”!

Okay, okay, take it easy, partner. Feel better now? Got it all out of your system? Good, now go on with whatever it is you’ve cooked up to pass the time away.

until we meet again

your pal,

The President and Founder

Although William Blake has been described as “a man not forestalled by predecessors, nor to be classed with contemporaries, nor to be replaced by known or readily surmisable successors”, and even though many young people in universities all over the western world think he’s “super keen” my inclusion of his words in the title and body of this post should not be taken as anything other than my quoting “the Poets when it makes for my purpose.”
