We invade the future and the past and the present with our ideals. In this way, we demonstrate our control.
We come to be when we drive our ideas like a conquering army toward the poorly-defended.
We come to be as a mutually-supported tribe, driven closer still by the identification of an enemy to be invaded.
We conflate ‘is’ with ‘should’ but there is no ‘is’ on the ground and ‘should’ (being a wish) can’t be on the ground either.
For the thinking being, the object is dependent on agile perception, value, and investment.
Thus the material is in the grasp of the immaterial.
