Number Sixty Four

The sun rises.  Children think of it as a person; they give it two dots for eyes, and a smile.  They understand something -- that consciousness can live in things.  It can animate matter -- any matter.  Consciousness learns from rocks -- from states of deep inactivity.  It learns from moving at the speed of light, from going in circles, from endlessly exploding.

The sun rises.  And in the child's drawing occupies a place in the sky. The child draws lines radiating from the sun, a symbol of heat, of the intention to warm and give life.  The child draws the eyes open -- because the sun is awake.
