The Edge

Go to the edge of the world. Don't come back until you find it. Don't tell
me there's no edge. If you think there's no edge you're not at the edge of
the world. Are you. When you reach the edge of the world you have only one
way to go. You may think you have another way to do but you only have one
way to go and that is away from the edge of the world. You may go to the
edge and you may look over the edge. You may see the shell of the world or
the beams of the world. You may see the nodes of the world and the vectors
of the world. You cannot go beyond the edge of the world. You may think
the edge of the world is quiet and smooth. It is not. The edge of the
world repulses the world. The edge of the world repulses the world trying
to go beyond the edge of the world. The world cannot go beyond the edge of
the world. If you cannot go beyond the world at the edge of the world
you're at the edge of the world. You may dance at the edge of the world
and you may look. You may look just a little beyond the edge of the world.
You may look at the sky. The sky is part of the edge of the world. If you
look at the sky and you cannot touch the sky you are at the edge of the
world.

The edge of the world is not a barrier and not a frontier. There are no
guards at the edge of the worlds. There are no tariffs and no customs.
There is nothing at the edge of the world but the edge of the world. The
edge of the world is nothing and separates you from nothing. You may think
to yourself someone owns the rest of the world. Or someone owns the edge
of the world. Someone may own up to the edge of the world. Someone may own
the edge of the edge of the world. No one can own the edge of the edge
beyond the edge of the world. The edge of the edge beyond the edge of the
world is an open set. The world up to the edge of the world includes the
edge of the world. The edge of the world is a closed set. You may think
you are free but you are in a closed set. You may dance within the closed
set and you will be thrown back at the edge of the world. For the edge of
the world is an active edge and a prohibition. The prohibition at the edge
of the world is within the world.

Every dance is a dance at the edge of the world. Every dance weakens the
world. The world is weaker for dance. Dance is stronger for the world.

You may think you are at the edge of the world. Then return from the edge
of the world. You may think there's no edge of the world. Then you're not
at the edge of the world.

*There is a site bed on the edge. It is not an edge at all.
** There is no end to the open set of the other of the edge of the world.
*** There is no beginning as well.
