What is valuable in literature
Is its metaphor.
Except by more advanced cultures
Through the refining of a language…
Even going so further to identify every color
With a unique name,
This is what metaphor does
To the invisible strings of truth.
They are able to be found
But can only be found in metaphor.
The fact that two men can say exactly the same thing
In completely different words—
With completely different stories—
Even reaching that lofty goal of an idea
Simultaneously, without knowledge of the one from the other…
There is proof of God’s existence.
And this is it.
That latent in the ethos of all thought
Truths can be found independently by one or another.
