here is a mind in icy stasis
here is someone whose way of thinking
is a one way road without curves or junctions
here is someone with an attitude
engraved and never changing
here is someone who KNOWS the one and only TRUTH
Maintaining this stasis costs energy.
(Sometimes it might be healthy to be that sure and steadfast; but not for a long time.)
When the crystallising intellect
has killed all living thought
when the mind is thus dead
a new light may shine on the horizon.
