Layers within layers

Have you ever peeled an onion in the onion-esque pages of a book? Today I've been peeling metaphoric onions, but they don't make me cry. The ability to surf pages on line, reading stories and ideas from a thousand sources, really appeals to me. I love the way analytical constructs erect themselves in my mind, forming towers in which the heavens are reached, but there is no babel problem, other than the potential inner voice babble of cogs and wheels turning on the structuring of a position. That feeling in my chest as I work this way--is it merely relaxation, or is this what they call intellectual ecstasy? I'm not sure, but I know this is why I do what I do, in the way I do it. I am reading and writing and perhaps even doing arithmetic this weekend.

I've been listening today to Rob Modell and Michael Mantra's "Sonic Continuum", which posits that ambience freed of visuals provides a unique experience. I don't know about all that, but I am attracted to the way the mind's eye "sees" an idea without the need for a cortex-like imagining.
