Excerpt

Spell it out: I am not giving you anything fixed,
present or past, to theorize.

If you think you can theorize what I've given you,
you're a simpleton.

I am creating something ahead of me,
something I can work towards,

Something that may help you work towards
your own model.

It's a praxis, a process. Not a static thing.
