Thought’s Double Vision

by practicalspactical

The strange double vision that sees a spoon and sees the word spoon, the letters s,p,o,o,n, overlaid on it — and then the sad single vision that doesn’t even see the shape or the color or the light reflecting of its curves but only sees the letters — call that Apollo —

Task of Dionysus — recurring though not constant — is to see past the letters, see past the artifacts, the strange ideas, right or wrong but always something added — and see what is there — see in the way our eyes are meant to see — see with the eye, not the mind — live in the light not in the dark — music can do it — raw — fresh — unencumbered —
