moon reflected sun reflected

people say – people always have something to say – that when gibbons gaze into the water and see the reflection of the moon, the animals do not know that the reflection is not the moon. they cannot discern the difference between the real and the facsimile.

i should add, that people are equally foolish. the reflection of the moon is really the sun. if we are what we do – and the sun, to us, is light – than the reflection of the moon is a sun on the water, like a rainbow pooled together into a rippling, white face.
