Partitions and limitations.

Every man supposes himself not to be fully understood; and if there is any truth in him, if he rests at last on the divine soul, I see not how it can be otherwise. The last chamber, the last closet, he must feel was never opened; there is always a residuum unknown, unanalyzable. That is every man believes that he has a greater possibility. Ralph Waldo Emerson This could take some tangential twists… I was introduced to Mr Emerson by someone who once told me “our moods do not believe in each other”.
