Truth is not only violated by falsehood;
it may be outraged by silence.
— Henri-Frédéric Amiel
While still primarily a human, Lee experienced the characteristics and traits of a human body — consumption of food, including the breakdown of vegetables and cake into usable energy and waste byproducts; thoughts, including analysis of the gaps in time between feedings; sleep; companionship.
Say not, I have found the truth, but rather, I have found a truth.
— Kahlil Gibran
Lee lived outside of time. Lee was only a placeholder, a label, a passing fancy for a temporary confluence of a set of states of energy in motion. Lee could live anywhere, anytime, and did.
Lee’s only concern was about expanding life on Earth back out into the solar system.
Lee did not bother with the definition of life.
Life is the goal of expansion, the clicks and pops of a sunroom’s walls changing shape in the heat of a hot, late spring day.
By necessity, by proclivity, and by delight, we all quote.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
At times, Lee reached points where entropy caused the definition of Lee to stop temporarily, disappear into a dream within the condition known as sleeping, sometimes for years.
