The Onion


There is always more.
From explanations imprisioned in language to the visual evidence available to those species who use light to orientate their existence.
There is always another layer; beyond the known, beyond the understanding of parasites.

oh... so beautiful!
i mean the words... i cannot see the pic!

and they remind me of Shrek... when he starts his quest... and that funny but sublime dialog he has with Donkey in the field...

oh you are not angry with me, are you?

crows learn from both classics and the trash...
in the world they live light passes through both classics and comics...

:D

show me a parasite that draws blood and I will show you some thing that understands the value of attachments.

Punch said...

human being... she is beautiful in the photo, as much as the words.
walking... i suppose you are talking about the health industry. I can't make the leap. There must be more, there is always more, beyond the known.

Yodood said...

The least one can say about the more. Bravo once again, Pisces

Parasites feed on others' thoughts for sustenance, never understanding the thinker has moved beyond leaving such blood as dries for those who dare not follow curiosity's crumbs, so anxiously attached are they to what they read as conclusive explanation.

Now this I really like.

Until it ends ...

Beverly Hamilton Wenham said...

Are not all photographers parasites in one way or another? I know I am. We shoot therefor we are. Or We shoot we score! Something like that.
Great stuff!

the walking man said...

And here I was thinking of a Lamprey eel, scourge of the native fish of the Great Lakes.

Now I find out a parasite is one who uses proven knowledge to move it to another level.

Cinnamon said...

OMG I think I must be going thick. I don't understand what on earth you are all talking about! Health industry? Lamprey Eels? Parasites valuing attachments? Shrek??

Pisces I think I am going to have to leave you to your esteemed philosopher friends! I thought you were saying there is more to people than face value.

The only parasite I know anything about is plasmodium falciparum, the malaria parasite which kills 3 million children every year.

But I wonder which parasites you are talking about?

CherryPie said...

So many layers for people to unwrap and understand!ps

Folks: apologies for the slow response as I have been away on a training course (ho-hum)
human being: not sure how I feel being compared to Shrek :D

walking man: some attachments are a little too close perhaps?

punch: even in the known there are deeper levels of understanding

yodood: it is in the nature of the food chain that nothing is wasted.

Jimmy: :)

James: when it ends there is nothing more to know.

Beverly: it took me another read of my own words to get the photography connection (those species that use light to orientate their existence?) I don't think photographers are necessarily parasites - the paparazzi perhaps but then they are not photographers for the love of it.

cinnamon: the commenters here are all coming from their own levels of the onion - don't be intimidated, wade right in the water's lovely :D
To put these sentences into perspective: I extracted this from a sci-fi novel that I am trying to write which involves an egotistical planet-seeding technician and a flu virus that infects the planet itself - I was curious to see what thoughts would be stirred in this audience.

CherryPie: the comments here are a whole new onion.

Cinnamon said...

Ah thank you for the perspective- that's better!

Sounds like it will be a great novel- Science Fiction not my thing you know (though I am a Doctor Who fan)- but I just know this one will be one big fat onion! When can be expect its birth?

Cinnamon said...

When can we expect its birth? (sorry for typo)

The novel entitled "Decaying Orbits" has been in the process for about a year now but I've been stalled for about three months.
