Wriggling, it splits open.

In the East, the Supreme cause.
Multitudes in harmony;
The element CH'A to mistake
Its appearance.

Holding on produces that which is evil.

We drove for a mile out of our way to get to a little grocery store that was closed. A baseball game was happening behind the store. The people seemed, by their cars and dress, pretty well off. There was something very high-tech about this world. The corn fields were accented by giant sprinklers.
