How much effort did humans expend in the making of heaven and earth? None at all. How, then, do they presume to own what they didn't create? Let them presume what they will - they've no justification for excluding others. To parcel out this vast earth with fences and signposts, proclaiming who owns what, is akin to roping off the heavens, declaring this piece mine and that yours. If the ground can be cut into sections and sold, then the air we breathe can as well be carved into saleable blocks. The air cannot be sold in blocks, and the heavens cannot be roped off. Is possessing the ground, then, any less absurd? As a believer in the Reality of Existence, and as an adherent to the Laws of Existence, I go where I please. I avoid, of course, those places I choose to avoid, but once I've set my sights on a place, be it north, south, east, or west, I proceed at my own pace, confident and composed. The Kaneda's and their like warrant no special deference. -- To a cat's chagrin, however, when push comes to shove we're no match for humans. In this transient realm, "might equals right," so to say, and a cat's rhetoric, no matter how sound, does not carry the day. Insistence and persistence, as Kurumaya no Kuro readily attests, means risking the wrath of the fishmonger's pole. When reason is on one's side one but power is not, one has two choices. The first is to bend one's logic and happily comply, and the second is to persist and evade. Of course I choose the latter. To avoid the fishmonger's pole, one must practice stealth. Premises entice, and there must one go. The Kaneda residence is mine to invade.
