In conjecturing what may be, men set before them the examples of what has been, and divine of the new with an imagination preoccupied and coloured by the old; which way of forming opinions is very fallacious; for streams that are drawn from the springhead of nature do not always run in the old channels.
Francis Bacon, Novum Organum, C1X
Phew! And now I see this article. The Hermit is pondering hands… Good job I will not have the time today, or this week-end, to leave a comment! I’m helping to move a temple from one house to another. I’ll be using my hands, which by the way, are wonderfully connected to the rest of me! I hope I use them with this connection in mind.
More on hands, and working meditation another time.
