Echoes of The Bacchae

     To deny the existence of red
     is to deny the existence of mystery.
     The soul which does so will one day go mad.

     I will never know how you see red
     and you will never know how I see
     it. But this separation of consci-
     ousness is recognized only after
     a failure of communication ..
