Hi all,

I thought you might like to know that I am still following all this (or
maybe not).
I will eventually post something on the lines that SOM is contemporary
society's way of defining reality - i.e. forcing it's definition of reality
on its members. Pirsig's Quality (Man is the Measure) places the focus of
reality on INDIVIDUAL experience.

I think that sums up the rebellious nature of the MoQ, as illustrated by the
Rigel/Phaedrus argument at the start of Lila.

As an aside . . .

Well there isn't a grammar in any language that strays from
(only the order strays).

Is this the case with Hebrew also?

Yes. Hebrew has very definite distinctions between subject and objects,
though the subject-object-verb order isn't very rigid.
Subjects and objects often appear as prefixes or suffixes to verbs.

Now back to other things . . . (on this Eve of At-One-ment).
