If I wanted to make a play, I started by stating that I was going to make a play, then I announced myself as the author of that play. He didn't give it a name right away and did it all at once without thinking. Because thinking delays the understanding of deep things. The depth is silent, or sometimes there is music, but mostly silent. Disgusted because it's not above, like the other things we see above. No, the depth is always below, behind, without surface. And you can't see it either. It doesn't leave, it doesn't integrate.

So if I wanted to eventually do a deep piece, I wouldn't show it, or I wouldn't do it. Since the pieces to be made have to come to the top, stop at our hands. Ah... and being seen, they have to be seen, and the more seen the more they are seen. And the more showy the more seen they will be. And the more delicious the more food then. A piece can even be deep if it tastes good and then eaten. Otherwise it spoils.
