DIZZINESS — A Resource

Observation 11

The fish trap exists because of the fish;

once you’ve gotten the fish, you can forget the trap.

The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit;

once you’ve gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare.

Words exist because of meaning;

once you’ve gotten the meaning, you can forget the words.

Where can I find a man who has forgotten words

so I can have a word with him?¹
