How to we balance concentration and awareness. It is a course of continual correction. That is, until such a moment as Archimedes'. (It occurs to me that the Roman soldier may have been unfairly maligned in that, although excited to violence in the circumstances of looting a city, the cleaving of A's head could have been the manifestation of a sudden geometric insight on his part. Imagine his regret later at the loss of A and the lifetime of drink that followed and the haunting dreams of circles appearing and disappearing, as in Flatland. The horror.)

What a great comment! Its a poem, really, that you hid in a paragraph. I particularly like he Roman soldier's dream of circles disappeared.

"Dreampt of Disappeared Circles"

How to we balance
concentration and awareness.
It is a course
of continual correction.
That is, until such a moment
as Archimedes'.

The Roman soldier may have been unfairly maligned
although excited to violence
in the circumstances of looting
a city,
the cleaving of A's head
could have been the manifestation
of a sudden geometric insight
on his part.

Imagine his regret
later
at the loss of A
and the lifetime of drink that
followed
and the haunting dreams of circles appearing and disappearing,
as in Flatland.
The horror.
