I attempt to describe how it is inconsequential to imbue factors in life with negative or positive meanings since both are consistently present.
The oxidisation of cyanoacrylate (super glue) with bleaching hydroxide to form organic yet rigid structures presents a metaphor for how non-material abstract ideas (or Forms) are imposed on the physical things and events that we experience in the material world.
Plato’s Metaphor of the Sun in The Republic, Book VI, explains how the Good reveals the truth of Forms and reality to man just like how the Sun brings light and enables one to experience his perceptual world.
The Inverse Sun is dry, rigid and seems almost posthumous in its symbolic contained frame, a representation of how our perceived reality based on the material world is flawed and imperfect, a far cry from ultimate reality made of Forms.
