  1. i apoligize it took the form of a shitey poem, but sometimes easier, however pretensious seeming:

    Is that old impassive rock not alive?
    Could it have tricked its mind into believing it wills my path obstructed by its weight?
    Could I not be a boulder's hands, moving other boulders at its commands?
    My hand surely is not alive--
    But would I ask it?
    And when it answer--for an answer, positive or negative, is always there-- would i believe it? would I believe that it answered?
    I have tricked myself into believing my brain enslaves my body when a dialogue exists between all parts.
    I do hope, for his sake, that my friend, the rock has no delusions of grandeur...that he controls the wind which dries his flesh, or the river moves his earthen legs;
    And I hope the same for myself.
