And of course, fascinating though it is to discuss, there is no right
answer as any dyadic fork between things and references to things
can be torn apart. In Jacques Derrida-speak, all markup is
"speech" with all the issues of separation from the original
communication that that involves. There is no way to fully
separate the dancer from the dance. (Yeats-speak).
