We discovered an island today.
Islands are one of those unexpected things that seem to rise from the depths of rivers and oceans to consume and become consumed as centuries pass. While we may think about it very often, the major continents are a larger-version of islands, or so I like to believe, sometimes. Carved out of massive mosaics of rocks and layers of dirt, the surfaces of islands are a reflection of the earthquakes occurring underneath the surface. People are like that, too. Often what we see and perceive on the surface of a person is an older version of something that happened rightnowthismoment or long, long ago. I’m not sure how I can translate this as a manifestation of thought processes that affect our actions, a symbol of ethnography that explains the levels of processing that occurs is too beyond my scope right now while I’m writing this paper, and maybe that’s just an excuse, for isn’t life.. full of excuses? reasons upon reasonings upon reasons for everything. Something like inductive reason (Philosophy 100) .. but that’s the most concise summary I can get at right now.
