In the stream of consciousness, like fish, the occasional thought will rise to the surface and, perhaps, be caught in the net. It can then be observed as it slowly decays.
Those earlier thoughts, from a primordial time, have been gathered together and are nicely displayed under the heading Old Testament . . .
Some more recent thoughts can be found carefully transcribed in the New Testament . . .
. . . let us hope that we do not find the truth or get as far as the Transfiguration or even, God forbid, the Revelation of St John the Divine. The many headed dragon is always here, watching, raising up - chant the mantra, shelter from this destruction.
