A Definition of Philosophy

Clocking in, I look left and right and check my blind spot, where he stands waiting. And I ponder and act out the definitions of philosophy. Diamonds shower down from the sky and embed themselves into the land, the once soft skin. Philosophy, then, is the endeavour to articulate, verbally and physically, innate knowledge- consciousness. It is, after all, our knowledge by which we are defined. The more we possess, the more accountable we naturally become. And yet, none is tested beyond his means and it is in this truth that we are made equal. And so it may be said, the yardstick of our shadows is our knowledge. As they clench their fists at this proposal, the diamonds pop out and hit the ground, glinting, scattering.
