Polite languages of avoidance. Antivalues of the experts. Experts in snakehandling. Vires, noli me tangere. Pasty hands that slink and grapple under tables. White-washed Tragodia, a history of “sleepily polite masses”, those hearers and responders. A new ethics for the immovable stone. A hell for every rock, so that there was no distinguishing between animate and inanimate things.
Stones have better ethics than we.
