    Dear Platt and Jonathan,

    I think a case can also be made that Pirsig presents a relative metaphysics
    (because it recognizes the possibility and truth of alternative
    methaphycics, of 'alternative paintings in the art gallery of the
    intellectual level') wherein absolute statements (like Subject-Object
    Thinkings presupposition that there is a reality independent from our
    experience) are considered to be high-quality ideas.

    Maybe we can agree that the MoQ can paradoxically be understood as BOTH an
    absolute metaphysics which values relativity AND a relative metaphysics
    which values absolute statements?

    With friendly greetings,
