Food for thought:

“Symbolism must be eliminated.  Once we end symbolism, we are also participating in the demise of cultism and superstition. […] Humans were in a special state of mind when they created symbols. That special state of mind is what I call a neurological misadventure, a diseased state.” (Edgar Ridley, The Golden Apple: Changing the Structure of Civilization).

Curious thoughts…

Mind is a leg.  Sometimes it takes a walk into a symbolic nowhere.

Am I being symbolic?

Guilty as charged.
