a parley of just plain thoughts

Cadmus: Do you know why the dark sky looks magical only with stars?

Tiresias: Forgive me Master, I know not of the wisdom of nature of sight, it is, as I believe, both a curse and a gift.

Cadmus: Oh my dear friend, I wish you could see the beauty of white dots sparkling on the black velvet. How very unfortunate it is to not experience nature's beauty!

Tiresias: Certainly Master, but do not let beauty fool thine vision. Beauty is like the sirens leading wanderers further and farther astray, Beauty is also the Goddess to mortals who worship its worthiness.

Cadmus: Beauty is also beautiful!

Tiresias: Beauty is also ugly, my dear Master!

Cadmus: What relevance is this to me, Ti?

Tiresias: Thou art the ruler dear Master. Thou should know that Beauty is but found in unity, a chaotic yet serene alloy in form. The eyes that praise the dark expanse over must also foresee the ugly end of time clasping the night and the day rising.

Cadmus: Ti, now confused I remain...

Tiresias: Yet, Master, it is one state of mind, and the Beauty of being confused is that thou now know that thou art confused.

Cadmus: Leave me to my rustling thoughts, Ti. Go into that gentle sleep for a while...

Tiresias: I bid thee farewell for tonight. I pray thee to have a peaceful and beautiful sleep.

once somewhere in the high seas, ridden with buccaneers ( also called pirates) were a set of code developed. Jack sparrow and caribbean notwithstanding, the word parley came to be discussed in terms of understanding and having a sense of reason. a reason to live and to .. in some cases die..

This piece of yours little panda, on parley and on life, has the light, has the dark, has the parley between the known and the unknown ( either color can represent that)
