Know thyself…

France & Vincent


No one can see the other’s ‘thought’.


We may fancy we see ‘a thought’

or ‘thoughts’ of the other in action,

but we really only see what we think are those ‘thoughts’,

or ‘a thought’, in action.


If we think we can know the other,

then we are sadly mistaken.


The unseen of the other is impenetrable.

It can never be known and can only ever be seen

as a shadow play flitting dimly upon an outer screen.


The other’s unseen is your seen but unknown.

Your seen is the other’s unseen but knowable.

Your unseen is the other’s seen but unknowable.

The other’s seen is your unseen but known.


Which is why we say,

‘gnothi seauton’.
