Well, now I am at another point. That is the point where you say, "I am at a point in my life." I am at a point in my life where I am at a point in my life." In other words, I cannot say where I am. I realize that eventually you get to points that are more and more vague. Now that you have reached all kinds of thresholds of understanding, you completely understand NOTHING. Once things begin to make sense, they begin to unravel. Where else could they go? It makes perfect sense, because you can't understand everything, so once the ball has wrapped up, it starts to unravel.

So I am at the point where I understand very little, and now I start to write it down.

When you throw a pot, you gradually pull on the walls of the pot, creating lines and eventually, walls. You pull it up, until it grows and finally reaches the desired height and shape. It seems like you are doing nothing, really - each line you create happens effortlessly and changes occur which you don't really see happening.

But when all is said and done, after a very slow process of pulling and being patient and still, you have created a change in the pot which only you can really see. It is a very slight change from the previous pull, but if you stand back and you look at the overall change from beginning to end, you can see that there has been a dramatic change. Maybe not obvious as you are going through the procedure, but dramatic none the same.

That is why.

Why Fair, my friend? Why is the default fair?

We look around us and see ecology, harmony, balance, and assume an equality. Ergo, the good with the bad, the ups and the downs, the Yin and the Yang. I say, no good, no bad, just is, and is not. No up, no down, just here, and there.

No Yin, no Yang, just us, and them. No fairness, no unfairness.
