Principles…

*

It is clear that the ‘fatal flaw’ works

by simple juxtaposition in seeking to posit a personal

  rationality for the death of the hero, and that this outlook

can be seen to be now all but inherent in most human psyches.

*

For our ‘bindings’ we may have to look a little deeper.

*

So, what three eventualities would cause the demise

of any individual if ignored?

*

‘Three minutes without air.

Three days without water.

Three weeks without food.’

*

A rule of thumb for the survival of our species!

*

These durations are general

and can be prolonged with dedication

but the strictness of the numerology is quite suggestive.

*

Two of these necessities are familiar principles

but we can go out on a limb and posit food

as a cypher for earth because, ultimately,

all our food derives from the Earth.

  1. I really love this. So many things on this earth can be seen to boil down (if you will) to numbers, and I think there are sacred numbers everywhere if we look around. Even the idea of Jesus on the cross involved three people on crosses at the same time, and I am not sure if this was standard or not, but it caused me to think. And I think there were other things as my weak memory tells me in the Bible too about how he would be betrayed three times before the cock crowed. I think there were a lot of other notes too that involved three. My memory today is not that great, but I have vague recollections of a number of things that involved three. As I think about it, there were twelve disciples, but that could be divided by three as well, or by four to get three. And I have heard “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.” So I guess there are a lot of things. This is always so interesting and such a good way to learn. Thank you most kindly. I have been absent a bit, but am trying to spend a bit of time catching up on reading.
