    1. William: as nietzsche said (i think this is what he said): if you stare at a frog for long enough, the frog will stare back at you ...

  2. after creating the perfect fern, now you give us the archetype of frog :-)

    maybe the answer articulates a tension at the core of our western culture: (only) the surface is always real (postmodern), the surface is never real (high modernism)...

    such a deep and funny post, i am delighted :-)
    (i have always loved the subtlety of your sense of humour)

      noumenon or phenomenon? surface or what is under the surface? i'm not sure that either is real, perhaps only the action of questioning ...

      i envy frogs, who never bruise themselves on such quandaries (as far as i know :-)))
