ambiguous offerings

ambiguity is ubiquitous. freud defined neurosis as the inability to tolerate it. eighteenth century philosopher adam smith famously wrote that from the city of skepticism he had to pass through the valley of ambiguity.

i love the creative applications it affords the most banal aspects of existence. the lovely deviating scenic route it presents on a dull straight highway: a candied refuge for the mind.

projection & perception are often worlds apart. sometimes intentional, others no. duplicity & ambiguity sporadic half-siblings shrouded in the other's shadow. the stuff of age-old games. most ancient philosophy & poetry does not date. we still dance to the same recycled tune.

as an aside what do you think this company sells?
