Chiaroscuro…

*

It is in the nature of things to deceive.

So, if we take ‘space’, ‘time’, ‘form’ and ‘motion’ to be deceptions…

Would it not be justifiable to mistrust our ‘thinking’ also?

‘What innocence!’

‘What daring!’

To expect consciousness to be honest about the outside world.

Should we not screw up our faces with suspicion

at every judgement proclaimed from this, ‘Court of the Apparent’?

This, ‘Court of the Apparition’?

Ah, but what shades of light and dark co-exist betwixt these two!
