Opposing (October)

Is there any way out of opposing dualistic thinking? Religions say there is, though even they’re prone to dualisms. Lately we have entered the Digital Age, which we are reminded of each time we click ‘Like’ on blog or Facebook, as though irresistibly. Up it goes, a thumb that flags our apparent desire to give approval. Australians are especially proud to share the continent with marsupials, many of which have opposing digits, in particular koalas. Whether February, June, October, they are high in trees giving their thumbs-up in typically prehensile fashion. Most birds have opposing digits, which makes sense, really.
