Chapter 9

To be independent is really to be in-dependence.  Every object one calls his own is made of a thousand parts coming from a thousand worlds, was assembled by a thousand hands, and has changed a thousand times.  After its brief stay in the space capsule, it will become a thousand more things a thousand more times before the end of the galaxy.

Relation can be symbiotic and not parasitic.  In the web of being, each knot is a meeting.  To live on a planet, in a world, not just visit one with a backpack and an ideology, is to meet each string of being with an open heart.  It is to tie something together out of your beings that will become the part of a string of other beings that will in turn be knotted again.  In this way, work is art.
