Briefing on Going Back

 Going back is always hardest when you forgot to leave breadcrumbs to begin with.

  1. Going back, like going forward, involves groping in the dark. Many times it also involves failing to arrive at a point that is any better illuminated than the initial confusion.

  1. When you go back it takes three times as much energy and two times as much will. This is substantiated by Magere’s theorem, which states that the act of pulling a sword from a shadow depends on consent from both the sword and the shadow.

  1. Getting consent from shadows is as easy as untangling oneself from the web of history and equally as dangerous.

  1. When going back feels like failure one must examine what it is to fail and why it may have happened.

  1. The path to the reset button involves going back on the path away from it. The people along the path have not forgotten how you passed through the first time.

  1. Even if they have forgotten moving backwards through time is generally frowned upon by both fate and circumstance. Only luck and her ilk are known to interfere with matters of time and energy.

  1. It doesn’t matter except as far and as often as it will. No one will care until they do and nothing counts for anything, till it counts for everything. There are only so many ways to state the obvious.

  1. Why does it have to be stated if it is obvious?

  1. Those with the foresight to carry breadcrumbs rarely have the mind to make sandwiches.

  1. Going back is only useful if going forward demands it.

  1. Anyidoho: and the union of time sound and silence gave birth to rhythm

  1. Does meter move forward? Or does it go back to look for skipped beats?

Conclusion: Pack bread crumbs. It’s going to be a long trip.
