The music changed again, and now it was the violin that sustained
- How passionately!
- The long-drawn note of contemplation,
- While the two recorders took up the theme of active involvement and repeated it
— the identical form imposed upon another substance—
In the mode of detachment.
And here, dancing in and out between them,
was the Logical Positivist, absurd but indispensable, trying to explain,
in a language incommensurable with the facts, what is was all about.
by Aldous Huxley
