The whole is greater than the sum of its parts...

From: Zipporah Aviva USA


I loved your ponderings on the significance of the last postcard in the Golden Meaan. The search for meaning is often times more meaningful than the attainment of a definative answer, n'est pas? I think that the child represents on both a concrete and abstract level that which is created by the joining together of two people. I think that the we you mentioned goes along with this. In the joining together of Griffin and Sabine two new identities are formed. Neither is who they were before. Not to say that they lose themselves but rather that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Any one else care to weigh in on couplehood and identities?
