That's the point my friend.. there are MANY pieces 'in one'.
That people don't understand that point is problematic.

but one can trample you and one can only make you run
for a humane trap or whatever. Or a hungry boa. However
The points of view of "only one" and "there are two" are
both tremendously in error.

the first step of the journey. It's the first step of human
But just like you can't argue with a drunk, you can't argue
