Axiom, Alpha:
Perception isn't reality.

Uncommon Insight, Alpha minor:
Sometimes perception is not too far from reality. Often, it could be.

Common Knowledge, Beta:
Distance gives perspective.

Outrageous Conclusion, Omega:

mechanics of a sober solitude

roll on smooth
perfect motion
round and round
sputter, stutter
jump and jerk
pause and leap
rough and tough
fret and fritter
crawl and drag
force and friction
beginning's end
and end's beginning
