Consecration row

  As for the final calcula-
  tion, it's hard to explain: 
  you just know it is right.
  What .. I realised then
  was the importance of in-

Not just scientific intermittency, but mental and emotional intermittency, too. How, in a world of disintegration and endless renewal .. one must find one's own rhythm exactly by recognising the incompleteness of the melody.

It was a great gift, because incompleteness is what points to that ideal of the whole. It shows the way to whatever is emergent at the limits of any system, from an ant-lion's nest in Nyasaland to the ever-expanding edges of the universe.
