THE ZEROES ARE SINGING FOR YOU
YOU ARE "NOBODY" ELSE
"You are my Moon, you are my Sun. Heaven Knows? What Are You?"
Toy as Dalliance/Delay & Trivia:
Trivia - Trivium (The Crossroads)
Trivialis - Found Everywhere.
Characterized by having all "Variables" Equal to Zero.
Crossroads - A Crucial Point especially where a Decision must be made. The Place of Intersection of Two or More Roads.
Delay/Dalliance - A Wavering Between Two or More Possible Courses of Action.
David Bowie, a Crossroads Dallier, is a Master of the Inconclusive.
Bowie is to be Found Everywhere Toying Around.
Toying Around is about Vacillating Irresolutely Between Choices, knowing that every Course of Action is a "Curse of Action" - Forever transforming the Pure Potential of Shadowing Beginnings into the Fixed and Solid Forms of the "Actual."
David often fluctuates in opinion, audience allegiance, and musical direction, delaying a "Main Activity" with seemingly aimless Stops and Pauses. He will sometimes remain in a Musical Area for no "Obvious" Reason. But those "Pauses Between" are Crucial.
Zero, the "Additive Identity," the "Empty Space," is the Number "Between" the Set of all Negative Numbers and the Set of all Positive Numbers.
"Torn between the light and dark where others see their targets..."
Toy can be seen as the Trivia, the Trickster at the Crossroads. Toying/Dallying can be a Prolonged Hesitation caused from an Inability or Unwillingness to reach a Firm or Final Decision.
But more significantly "Toying" implies the "Variable."
Toy is the Quantity that may Assume ANY ONE OF A SET OF VALUES.
With Toy, Bowie uses his License to do things "Contrary to the Usual Rules."
The fickle, inconstant, ever-changing DB hangs around at the Crossroads.
Like the Holy Fool, he loiters on the brink of the Abyss.
His number is Zero and his Toy is the "Delay," the Pause/Pose he embodies before Deciding or Choosing his Next Course of Action.
