ONE AND TWO
If someone is one, does he need to be one again?
If he is one, how does he become two?
If he is two, how does he become one?

If someone is free, does he need to be free again?
If he is not free, how does he become free?
If he is free, how does he become not free?

If someone is true, does he need to be true again?
If he is not true, how does he become true?
If he is true, how does he become not true?

It seems that one, two, free, not free, true, not true,...
just exist in thought.
