Example text

Yes, now I do, I think, grasp precisely the distinction you have made. And I must say I fully agree with that. K: Unless you feel new you cannot create anything new. A: That's right. And the person who imagines that he is creative in this other sense that we pointed to is a person whose reference for his activity is this observer that we mentioned that is tied to the past. K: Yes, that's right. A: So even if something does appear that is really extraordinarily novel, merely novel, but still extraordinarily novel, they are kidding themselves.

A: Not radically new, but novel. K: It's like creative writing, teaching creative writing. It's so absurd. A: Exactly. Yes, now I do, I think, grasp precisely the distinction you have made. And I must say I fully agree with that. K: Unless you feel new you cannot create anything new. A: That's right. And the person who imagines that he is creative in this other sense that we pointed to is a person whose reference for his activity is this observer that we mentioned that is tied to the past. K: Yes, that's right.

A: So that we are both - yes, yes! K: Walking together all the time. A: There is a concurrent activity. Not one making a statement, the other thinking about it and then saying, "Well, I agree, I don't agree, I accept, I don't accept. These are the reasons I don't accept. These are the reasons I do", but we are walking together. K: Journeying together, walking together on the same path. A: Side by side. Yes. K: On the same road, with the same attention, with the same intensity, at the same tongue, otherwise there is no communication.
