Thanks for your insight. There is much to think about here and i shall be
doing that today.
For now, here is something:
Moving waves the wind has left you
and you are still in commotion.
We are still repeating the word it has taught us,
It moves our whole being to ecstasy.
Waves why do you all become excited
and then all come together?
Because behind our individual action
there is one impulse working.
What motive is behind your impulse?
The desire to reach upwards!
All the best,
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.

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?
