our partial belief



I do not believe in ghosts unless I see them. I forget them. When I read, I need to find the necessary volume for the space. Books in quantity manifest our partial belief that nothing in the world passes away. Nothing has disappeared. We apprehend very little. Ghosts emerge in our peripheral vision. Today (meaningless) I could not see anybody.
