The world
is not a sphere.
The world
is an amoeba.

hmmm...
so intriguing... as these two (sphere and amoeba) are not mutually exclusive...

aha! perhaps you wanted to draw our attention to this fact that it is not something fixed and definite... it is somethng alive... growing... and growing... and the end is not determined... perhaps it will die... perhaps it can propagate... and create new worlds...

loved this...
puzzles are good... they make us think...

thanks for this, my dear friend...

But my Adi says it is Round. What is Sphere ? What is Amoeba ?

Well said HDWK.

You would find angles,
and contours,
and incomplete edges...
where you would least expect them.

Back in the 1960s we said that reality is silly putty.

How do we know said...

Hi hb: Yes.. an amoeba can be a spehere but a sphere cannot be an amoeba.
I did want to say what you have indicated. And i loved ur recent series too.

Hi Double Dolphin: thats what i think. really ka pata nahi :-)

Hi Raaji: Yep :-)

Hi Manish: If Adi thinks it is round, it is round then.. and happily so!

Hi Mampi: Yes :-)

Hi Mai: And what do you say now? :-)

Hi Zirelda: Yes, thats it.

Now I say:

Remain in chardi kala!

Id it is said...

Interesting analogy! Definitely lacks the hold and thus the structure, but would I have it otherwise? It would be all so predictable...walking round the circumference endlessly! The lack of form lends suspense which lends purpose to the 70+ years you spend wondering where the next turn may be and what it is that may be awaiting you round the next corner :)
That analogy really captures the imagination.
