“I Don’t Belong to Either”

“Perhaps that’s what I feel, an outside and an inside and me in the middle, perhaps that’s what I am, the thing that divides the world in two, on the one side the outside, on the other the inside, that can be as thin as foil, I’m neither one side nor the other, I’m in the middle, I’m the partition, I’ve two surfaces and no thickness, perhaps that’s what I feel, myself vibrating, I’m the tympanum, on the one hand the mind, on the other the world, I don’t belong to either.” Samuel Beckett

    But what to do with that third “me”?

    The one that gloriously vibrates.

    Is there a job to be done, a task uncompleted?

    A vibration that is known to the “me” that is beyond
    this plane of existence that continues in all directions.

    The outside an illusion, the inside the projector …….

    The vibration is the only thing that exists.
