Does 'go away' seem in keeping with a desire to examine the universe, and see
clearly the things and relationships in it? Or does it seem more in keeping with
a different kind of want? The kind of want that a parent has for their children,
the desire to see that child succeed. Sometimes I experience this drive in my
programming projects, having invested much time and thought upon them. It seems
a waste, a loss of constructive processes, to start anew.

And therein is shed light upon want, to the mechanisms that drive us forward. I
don't actually want a brand new 60" wall-mounted plasma display, but I do
actually want the healthy young girl standing next to it. I notice that wanting
to breed is a process that seems to produce more children, ie
self-fulfilling/self-propagating.

For me, I can substitute an '=' sign for truth, in that it takes matching two
things and finding similarities before I categorize something as true or false.
This automated process takes away the mystery, which at first glance makes it
appear to be such a humble categorization tool as to be downright repugnant. But
there is something rather beautiful involved, if we dare to stare upon it:
Expressed in this mapping is a relationship, rather than a thing. The 'thing' is
the association between two things, rather than the things themselves.
