"We all know Aesop's fable of the dog who dropped a piece of meat
to grasp at its reflection in the water. We must not, however,
judge too severely of error. In the initial stages of mental
progress, error in symbolic reference is the discipline which
promotes imaginative freedom. Aesop's dog lost his meat, but he
gained a stop on the road towards a free imagination."

- Whitehead, Symbolism, its meaning and effect


& you don't know what you've got til it's gone
& then it returns as something to hone
& returns once again with the name of a home
& reflects for the dog with the meat of a bone

god = dog; live = evil
& i am the first among you to know this
& the last among this to know you
