The motion of quantities notion of quantities We cannot eliminate our-selves from 'The Picture' we are a-part of it when we study it it is studying itself Matter is momentary interaction momentary interaction of waves of fields of states of grains I'm glad to have seen you I'm trying to draw the clear light Things done before have no ending S. Gannon Jan. 83
