textualization of nature
“Philosophy [nature] is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes -- I mean the universe -- but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth.”

, for a legend is something to read and a myth is a tale and a tale is something carved with a knife. The thick chords of language have to be cut, and
usually only the eye can cut them
" Anthony Burgess,
(d) the dreamer was pulling a lady (a particular one, of his acquaintance) out from behind a bed. He himself found the meaning of the dream-element from the first idea that occurred to him. It meant that he was giving this lady preference."fn fn: "This example, like the next depends on a purely verbal point; the resemblance between the German words for 'pulling out' (hervorziehen) and 'preferring' (vorziehen)."
