14 Aug 2002 - As the motion(being) of a wheel(selfhood) is defined in relation to its axis(self) and the road/path(society/culture), perhaps self is the still point at the centre of movement, redefined moment by moment by its motion in relation to its environment/culture. Perhaps self is the synergism of experience at any particular fraction in time, a fixed point continually moving.
Switches in conception and perception, perhaps, creates the illusion of a lack of a true centre or identity when in "fact" it's only the circle(conceptualisations of reality) broadening. Positivism is at the heart of an attempt to "anchor" the radius of this circle - an attempt to freeze the iris. Self being thus, the "willing" agent at the heart of the iris.
Maybe the "happy union in our identity" is the inevitable result of the nature of our own(human) intelligence, and the seeming lack thereof just one "take on the spin"….at the centre(axis) of which we return to the self…the still point…eternally moving…

13 Aug 2002 - Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
