The circle of our understanding
Is a very restricted area
Except for a limited number
Of strictly practical purposes
We do not know what we are doing:
And even, when you think of it,
We do not know much about thinking.
What is happening outside of the circle?
And what is the meaning of happening?
What ambush lies beyond the heather
And behind the Standing Stones?
Beyond the Heaviside Layer
And behind the smiling Moon?
And what is being done to us?
And what are we, and what are we doing?
To each and every one of these questions
There is no conceivable answer.
The Talking Heads
You may ask yourself
Am I right?... Am I wrong?
You may say to yourself
My God!... what have I done?
INTO THE BLUE AGAIN...
INTO THE SILENT WATER
