Thanks Squonk,
Pure poetry!

Another view. I envy the Author as he ponders quality in solitude on a boat. Certainty washes his boat, seeing that the undefined is knowable to him. He floats on a river of existing infinite orders known by an instinctive grace, heading for the ocean (your idea). He wants to work out a problem of communication, and who would receive his experiences. He is certain as an individual knowing the undefined. He, also, realizes that talking about his experience might stir up trouble, and he is worried. However, like Socrates, he is certain and he wants to continue. He has been through serious troubles, and his courage, while tested, has not failed him.

Rigel is a successful attorney traveling on a boat with Bill as a hired hand. The two boats come together by chance and the social interaction up to the point of the conversation at breakfast has been cordial. Rigel has even offered his hired hand as available for hire to the Author who is attempting a long journey. There is no indication whether he asked the hired hand if he was willing. Perhaps, he was trying to look out for Bill's welfare much as the land owner looks after the peasants working the land. At breakfast Rigel chides the Author for his book, and his behavior with Lila the night before. The Author is upset. The situation is conventional, and the morality Rigel accuses the Author of abusing is conventional. The Author knows he has answers for Rigel, but they don't have time. They are on boats and move on. A conflict between two, and the more internal acknowledges the upset.

Thanks Joe,
Lila does indeed appear to be an allegory through the static levels, and i am fascinated by the dissolution of patterns throughout each level?
The subject/object split is destroyed throughout the allegory?
We are afloat upon a sea of patterning?

All the best,
