The Fool and The Fox
“You are like this cup; you are full of ideas. You come and ask for teaching, but your cup is full; I can’t put anything in. Before I can teach you, you’ll have to empty your cup.”
-Zen Master Ryutan, to the scholar Tokusan
The Fool and The Fox.
These two images embody a curious nature distinct from the rest of Anthromancer; their illustrations are in relief, their numbers are intangible, and their corresponding musical compositions are strange, mysterious, and hard to access. Why is that?
Contained within these figures is a story that, once told, may completely change the way you see this product, your participation in it, and maybe even the universe itself. But, to get there, you must approach these ideas with an open mind. They may challenge you, they may delight you, they may make you feel strange, or nothing at all. We hope that, through your play with the other components, you’ve come to learn some interesting things about the nature of meaning and awareness; about the power of art to create change.
Here, it comes full circle.
