monotonic said:Is that what it meant to you at the time that you wrote it?
When I first wrote it, no. But the impulse to write it was strong.
My present understanding of it came later. It was from realizing that "lessons" and "two truths" were essentially one and the same. This is a rather big statement. And I do not make it lightly. (It came after much thought and examination.)
And it was through the simpler "two truths" -- that allowed me a deeper look -- into the more complex nature of the "lessons."
But I could be wrong.
