This book,
not yet completed in your time,
exists in a library that is a model for the libraries that you know;

and yet in your terms this book is also an eccentricity,

for it is not a copy but a new edition,
completely repeated,
while holding within itself the kernel of its own integrity.


The creation of this book is original in that it has not existed in this form before in your world,

yet it is also written in response to its models;
and the same applies to all creativity.


. . . with apologies to Sal & thanx to Jane
