things rise to the surface, or rather their glimmers, appearances, barely
visible, as if clear delineation were muffled from world's origin.

1. clear definition is smeared across potentials and fields;
2. clear definition never existed in the first place - it's a chimera
whose appearance is the result of a false extrapolation back from the
surface.

like the pipa, this zither is difficult to play; what struggles to emerge
is often occluded by error, clumsiness, stings detuning, ignorance. but
like the pipa, clearly this instrument is filled with ghost matrices,
baryons of all sorts, uncanny jitters' memories.
