Let's say I have two cups from the night before, one that contained soda and one that contained dry cereal, and I want to have soda and cereal again tonight, and, most importantly, I am lazy, so I do not feel like washing both cups.
So, I will wash, at most, one cup.
What should I do?
Wash the cereal cup and use it for soda.
Rinse the soda cup and use it for cereal.
Why? It is easier to wash the cereal cup, and, thus it will take less energy to clean and make ready for any usage, including a beverage, whereas the soda cup will take more energy to clean thoroughly, but, with just a rinse, it becomes usable for cereal, which does not absorb the cup's residue the same way that a beverage does.
There is something deep and universal here.
There is a law of nature that I do not see but feel. The inversion. The dreamstate.
Rods. Champ. Inner Earth Beings. Steve Wozniak.
The surreal holographic redundancy.
They make me walk along the moonlit path and look up at the stars in wonder, with carnival-adoring Whitman as my guide.
