Passim. Syllabification: pas·sim. Pronunciation: pasim. adverb: passim. Definition: (of allusions or references in a published work) to be found at various places throughout the text. Origin: Latin, from passus ‘scattered,’ from the verb pandere.
Yugen suggests that beyond what can be said but is not an allusion to another world. "To watch the sun sink behind a flower clad hill. To wander on in a huge forest without thought of return. To stand upon the shore and gaze after a boat that disappears behind distant islands. To contemplate the flight of wild geese seen and lost among the clouds. And, subtle shadows of bamboo on bamboo." - Zeami Motokiyo, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_aesthetics #Yugen #wikipedia…
Reverse of a clay tablet from Pylos bearing the motif of the Labyrinth. The tablet, the earliest datable representation of the 7-course classical labyrinth, was recovered from the remains of the Mycenaean palace of Pylos, destroyed by fire ca 1200 BCE (Kern, Through the Labyrinth, Prestel, 2000, p. 73, catalog item 103–104). There is no evidence for a connection between the labyrinth design and the legend of Theseus at this early date.
