خدای من! چرا این کتاب اینجوریه! هگل میخوندم بیشتر میفهمیدم! هر صفحه رو چند بار خوندم و خوندم... ولی دریغ! مترجم باید بیشتر از علائم نگارشی استفاده میکرد و فکر میکنم یکم دخل و تصرف به صلاح دید خودش برای فهم بهتر خوانندههایی از جمله من جایز بود :دی

Strange little 14-page essay? prose poem? about black/white, dark/light, cold/heat, and 2 sleeping? dead? figures in a dome. Feels vaguely science fiction-y, like 2001 or something. The prose is rhythmic and hypnotic, but not particularly sensical.
