Going to school at five years of age was a real shock. This was not the kind of place or thing for me but I was compelled to go, there was no escape from the enforced tyranny of clock time and imposed learning. Education aided and abbetted words and language and further compressed my already shrinking world. I now stood almost fully individuated as a person. I could still sense the larger world I had unfolded from but could no longer gain access to it. Thrown into society I was forced apart and divided from my self but there was no alienation on my behalf just disappointment and an overwhelming sense of loss.
