Pillars in a wall…

***

Why… Would anyone… Build pillars… In a wall?… Both walls… And pillars… Are designed to achieve the same thing… If the pillars were failing… One might want to build a wall… Between them to add… Support… But to perform that operation… The other way around… Seems unlikely… To say the least… Pillars specifically… Raise things… To a height previously… Unattainable… Walls can raise things… But they also have other functions… Which pillars… Do not… Partitioning… And defence… Spring immediately… To mind… Apart from being futile… Building pillars in a wall is… Nonsensical.

An unfired brick on a kiln… Likewise… Seems utterly… Self-defeating… Not only will the brick melt… But it will render… The rest of the kiln… Unfit for purpose… Apart from being pointless… Unfired bricks on kilns are an inversion… And thus… Also nonsensical… Fishing the moon from water… Is obviously absurd… And only a fool… Would attempt such a thing… But there will have been many… If not all… Who upon first seeing such… An optical illusion… Will have tried… And failed… As the moon holds sway over all bodies of water… It is much easier to fish… Water from the moon…

To be born of water… Is to be water… To be born of fire… Is to be fire… As holds for any… And all the elements… To be born from… An immortal rock… Like Monkey… Presumably… Means what?… The denizens of the heaven world… Automatically assume that… Monkey’s immortality… Is bogus… And it is difficult… Not to suspect… That this is the case… Simply because their claims to such are… The heaven world… Is organised… And run like the highest bureaucracy… Of the earth world… And is partly… An ironic comment… On the old imperial system… Which held sway in China for millennia.
