A foreword: I deliberately chose the metaphysics forum because there is something to be learned in the telling of this tale. at the moment however the
effort to express such as an analasys is beyond me.
there once was a big multicolored slinky, perched at the top of some stairs. Life was grand and glorious, for the slinky had just finished the long
and arduous climb up the seemingly endless stairs. It was just simply resting, and reflecting back along the road it had taken, when someone came up
behind it. Now, the slinky really was quite exhausted, and furthermore, exhuberant... so while it sensed the presence, it didnt read it like it
normally would have assessed the situation.
"why hello there, sir, have you come from the stairs too?"
but the only reply was a sudden chill of cold as the unseen figure grabbed the slinkies top half and pushed it right over the edge! The slinky
screamed in fright and utter denial. - and screamed again when its body refused to listen to its commands and slunk right off the next step... and the
next one, and the next one. pretty soon, the slinky forgot that it could resist, so tired was it- a most unfortunate occurence, engrained even when
its power became restored.
