Chinese Theatre, Part II:

Just Say NO

For more on the above “spider” symbol, see

ART WARS for Trotsky’s Birthday
(Oct. 26, 2003), Parts I and II

and the site from which
the above figure is taken,

Yin & Yang and the I Ching.

For some Chinese poetic justice, see

The Song of Saint Ezra,

Library of Paradise, and

Endings and Beginnings.

See, too, the Chinese character for “end”
used to sell the work of Ian Fleming:

Note, in Endings and Beginnings, the strong resemblance between this character and the name of the Chinese-American architect of the Robert Frost Library at Amherst College.  Then meditate on the following passage by Amherst graduate Stephen Mitchell:

“We dance round in a ring and suppose,
But the Secret sits in the middle
    and knows,”
Robert Frost wrote,
looking in from the outside.
Looking out from the inside,
    Chuang-tzu wrote,
“When we understand, we are at
    the center of the circle,
and there we sit while Yes and No
    chase each other
around the circumference.”

A view of the Robert Frost Library
from the inside is available in the entry

Library of Paradise

mentioned above.

See, too, my entry

Keats and the Web

of July 28, 2002.
