Ideal

Imaginá un círculo. Ahora, deformalo, desfiguralo, rompelo. Las líneas que antes eran círculo empiezan a bailar, a moverse, y se reacomodan. Dos piernas, un torso, dos brazos, una cabeza; agregamos un poco de curvas sensuales (dependiendo de tu sexo y tu orientación) a gusto en los pechos, las caderas, el trasero.
Definido el contorno, imaginada una forma correspondiente a los cánones humanos, lo empezás a rellenar con lo que vos querés encontrar, lo que vos te decís que estás buscando. Le ponés no las experiencias que es posible que tenga, sino las que vos creés querer que tenga; los pensamientos que vos creés que debe razonar; el ánimo que vos necesitás que tenga.
Y ese círculo, que ya no es tal sino el ideal de lo que buscás, puede no existir. Pero vos no te das cuenta de eso, estás empecinado en seguirlo buscando. Y como sos cuadrado (todos somos cuadrados, y creemos que hay un círculo maleable como el del principio), no creés en otra opción; no te das cuenta que puede haber otro cuadrado que te haga bien… vos querés un círculo.

Jerry: See, there you go again. What is the difference what I think?
George: I was just curious.
