Lipton’s Journal/February 14, 1955/580

From Project Mailer

What I’ve been avoiding in consonants but must get into is that consonants which I’ve been approaching as units are actually spectrums, polarities, opposites. Thus r is rage, but it is also reason. The end of rage is reason, the end of frustrated reason is rage. So “s” is society which is static, but it is also sssssssssss which is the flow of gas, of water, of piss. I’ve been trying not to admit this for it makes my consonant approaches more difficult than ever. Now I have to give a double-spectrumed analysis of each word, and my poor brain aches.
