Beyond interpretation, 30 July 2001
Author: William J. Fickling (wfickling@sc.rr.com) from Columbia, South Carolina, USA

This is a truly unique masterpiece, whose influence can still be seen decades later. There will probably be a natural temptation to try to interpret, to ask "what does it mean?" Don't! That would break its magical spell and bring you back to the mundane world of the intellectual. It doesn't "mean" anything. It "means" everything. It "means" itself.
