You then look inside yourself. You pull and tug and squeeze and fish around for slippery raw shapeless things that swim like fish made of cloud vapor and fill you with living clamor. You latch onto something. And you bring it forth out of your head like Zeus giving birth to Athena. You have given it cohesion. You have brought forth something ordered and beautiful out of nothing. You have glimpsed the divine.
