Think of three, rather than one (or two).

Three dots, more or less identical.

Three black points, similar to the ones you see when you close your eyes after staring at the sun in the summer by the sea.

Each of these dots stands for [ I ].

[ I ] is a number, a letter, a word, a line.

In most cases, this character symbolizes a singular presence, a unique existence, an individual sole.

[ I ] was at location A.

Now [ I ] is at location B.

Through this reposition,

[ I ] mentally left

a part of it

at location A.

A dissociative state

of being.

To be here

and there

at the same

time.

Simultaneously

in two places.

It is during this time that [ I ] breaks into two and becomes [ I ] and [ I ].

A process almost identical to cell reproduction.

Indistinguishable but entirely different in spirit.

[ I ]1 and [ I ]2.

One has a name and the other another name.

One is at location A and the other at location B.

One is at East and the other at West.

[ I ]1 dreams of [ I ]2.

[ I ]2 dreams of [ I ]1 dreaming of [ I ]2.

[ I ]1 and [ I ]2 sometimes dream of [ I ].

Unremarkable dreams.

Uneventful

mood.

Just a fantasy

of another place.

A new

location.

A flawless landscape.

A computer background.

[ I ] dreams of

[ I ]1 and [ I ]2

every night and every day.
