Re: Janus
It may answer your query that I was about to put the enclosure in the mail when your letter appeared on my desk! (I had been perusing that issue of Daedalus a propos the enclosure.) The quotation struck me as especially true-to-life: suspension of judgment (to the point of indecisiveness) simultaneous tenability of the "Rashomon" perspectives Exploring the many truths and images; tolerance of ambiguity and also interplay of fantasy and of criticism are the elements that came to mind.
