The following came to me today: The implicit nature of things is pattern. The explicit nature of things is form. Both are equally "real." We are the pattern, the implicit. We yearn to see the implicit, which means that we yearn to see the pattern, which means that we yearn for meaning, which means that we yearn to connect part with whole. This yearning is what produces form. It is through our enacting of form that we re-enact pattern. Are we form, or are we pattern? We are the pattern, but all we can see in the mirror is form. All that we can imagine is form. We can, however, intuit the pattern. Do you get it?
