Things (res) actually always begin in the middle.
That’s the secret to in medias res: the way epic starts,
always in the middle rather than “in the beginning.”
The early stuff, throw-back and atavistic, gets
acknowledged over the course of narration.
Genealogy sometimes: list of fore fathers if not
mothers and their deeds.
But the point is: wherever I start, in the muddle over rides
my bias for beginnings & endings. So I Be Here Now, see:

Reading philosophy is like reading fiction with no characters.
Holy Ghost stories. No character, personae, no plot,
no settings—prior to “in the beginnings”
Fiction, nonetheless. Before history & story: pre-venient.
Finally Mind says
“Hell with this, damnit:let me say it this way then:
once upon a time Or: ‘Say there’s this guy, see;
and a woman: they collide at the crossroads….
I like reading philosophy because it’s disembodied.
More than one idea at time occupies the same space
Not the case when I character-Ize, manifest, embody,
tell me a story.
