So here’s the not-news:

Just in case there was any confusion about This, the me-costume we are wearing is not permanent. In good times it could be seen as bad news. In bad times it could be seen as good news. But ultimately, we wear this me-costume in order to discover that what is beneath, or behind, is permanent. And once This is discovered, the good/bad thing softens in intensity. It wanes in importance. And the Is-thing kind of takes over.

So much for the yo-yo.
