Mechanics

Things move. Things that are things are things that are put together out of other things. They are things that are assembled. They can be disassembled and reassembled. They can be unassembled. They can be fixed and unfixed. Fastened and unfastened. They can be piled up and piled down. They can be moved around from here to there and back again. But the understanding of things that is intelligence has nothing to do with mechanics. It has nothing to do with winches and hoists. Or with the assembly of things big or small. The understanding of things belongs to the arena of the things that don’t move. Things that aren’t things don’t move.
