As I get older, I more and more believe that opposites are the same statement. What matters is how you frame a subject, not the opinion you express on it.

In other words, it's the agreement that a certain set of opposed pairs constitutes a valid subject and forms a set and stable relationship that really counts. Everything after that (one's positionality within that agreed binary) is fairly irrelevant.

So speak!

In this matter, of course, I am siding with Alice against the Mad Hatter and the March Hare:



No, wait, I don't have to take sides, because, according to what I've just stated, they're all basically in agreement. And in fact that's how the conversation ends, in synthesis: the Hatter agrees that the Dormouse's "I breathe when I sleep" really is the same as his "I sleep when I breathe".

As you get older, you seem to move backwards in time from postmodernist to modernist, from poststructuralist to structuralist. Interesting!

As I get younger, I am discovering the exact opposite to be true. Don't you agree?

"You will reply that reality hasn't the slightest need to be of interest. And I'll answer you that reality may avoid the obligation to be interesting, but that hypothesis may not."

Actually, the argument could be made that ART is just a cheap way to provide synthesis to a world mesmerized by the eternal play of opposites.

But since today is opposite day, let me ask you this one important question. Do you want me to PUNCH you? Yes or No?

*punch*


Acceptable answers would have been: a) "maybe?" b) "eat you? with a gammy leg? or c) "what rhymes with octopus-dust?"

an example of opposites meaning the same thing from the world of alternative rock

"I tried to have a father but instead I have a dad"
- Nirvana

"He might be a father, but he sure ain't a dad"
- The Replacements
