Accidental Fences

“Out of my experiences, such as it is (and it is limited enough) one fixed conclusion dogmatically emerges, and that is this, that we with our lives are like islands in the sea, or like trees in the forest. The maple and the pine may whisper to each other with their leaves….but the trees also comingle their roots in the darkness underground, and the islands hang together through the ocean’s bottom.  Just so, and into which our minds plunge as into a mother sea or reservoir.”

James W, A Pluralistic Universe Longmans, Green and Co, 1909b
