if every discourse has a prevailing trope what's ours?

Nothing is mine-everything is ours


I like to think of the great message Odyssey is carrying through its meter, the most dys-tropic exameter..an infinite freedom of expression under the hardest set of rules

yep, the hardest the freer..

I meant it as an "even at" condition not as a strict prerequisite.Freedom has many qualities and many degrees.I'd say it's almost a "gut feeling" that drives us in this becoming.Again it's a matter of perspective.If by "hardest rules" you mean the external restrictions, we would expect absolute freedom of expression under a totalitarian law.That would be a paradox (it might as well lead to the "muslim effect", the prisoners in concentration camps that would lose any desire).But also, the hardest set of rules imposed by ourselves, would probably lead to our de-humanizing, to neurosis (and very seldom to Nirvana) .A prerequisite for freedom is to recognize the limits, but we tend to recognize what is already under our scope.The origin of the word ελευθερία, is attached to the verb ελευσομαι.To me, freedom is the space between γνωθι σ'αυτον and μηδεν αγαν.

i wasn't talking about external restrictions nor limits. above all freesom is the hardest, especially when it involves 'more'.

I Is an Other is endlessly illuminating in its entirety, exploring how metaphors influence our experience and understanding of everything from politics to science to money. It follows Geary’s equally fascinating The World in a Phrase: A History of Aphorisms and Geary’s Guide to the World’s Great Aphorists.
