The Narcissus-X Address

Four days plus seven days ago Narcissus-X brought forth on this computer, a new blog, conceived in solitude, and dedicated to the proposition that all things beyond Narcissus-X are irrelevant.

Now Narcissus-X is engaged in a great struggle, testing whether that blog, or any blog so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. Narcissus-X is in a great abyss as that struggle launches Narcissus-X into the void. Narcissus-X has come to dedicate a portion of that abyss as a final repository for ideas which gave their meaning that Narcissus-X might have relevance. It is on the whole appropriate and suitable that Narcissus-X should do this.

However, in a global context, Narcissus-X can not grant -- Narcissus-X can not set apart -- Narcissus-X can not exalt -- this portion of an abyss. The bold ideas, profound and cliché, which thrashed about here, have set apart this repository, although not as well as Narcissus-X could have, had Narcissus-X chosen to do so.

The world will little note, nor long remember, what Narcissus-X posts here, but it can never forget the ideas which Narcissus-X presents. It is for Narcissus-X, the blogger, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which these ideas, in ringing out here, have thus so nobly advanced.

It is rather for Narcissus-X to be here dedicated to the great task remaining for Narcissus-X -- that from these brilliant ideas Narcissus-X takes increased devotion to the cause for which they were posted, that these ideas shall not have been keyed in vain -- that this blog, through the work of Narcissus-X, shall have a new dawn of autonomy -- and that a blog of Narcissus-X, by Narcissus-X, for Narcissus-X shall not perish from the blogosphere.

It has come to the attention of some of the skeptics in the larger universe (yes, there is such a place) surrounding Narcissus-X that Narcissus-X appears to take subtle action to reach out to entities and communities beyond itself, thereby shaking the image of Narcissus-X as a wholly self-contained and self-sufficient entity thinking only of itself. Why, Narcissus-X, if you exist only for and about Narcissus-X, do you welcome and even seek commentary from beyond your own borders?

Narcissus-X, the blog about Narcissus-X, acknowledges the existence of those entities from the void surrounding Narcissus-X when those entities demonstrate perspicacity by visiting Narcissus-X.

To such discerning entities, Narcissus-X willingly grants the boon of sharing the evolving self-sufficiency which is Narcissus-X.

Indeed, this boon extends to commentary, which, since it appears on Narcissus-X, is part of Narcissus-X, and no doubt is inspired by Narcissus-X, the blog about Narcissus-X

brentd,

Yes, but it is a burden Narcissus-X must bear with equanimity.

(the eye guy says: thanks!)
