Extraordinary Discourse 006

I saw a sort of fat bottle, like a pot with a narrow mouth. I think it was made of clay and it was covered with little pieces of mirrors. When it reflected the light, each little mirror of the pot gave forth a particular image. Everything around it found in it a singular reflection and, at the same time, the whole resembled a rainbow of images. It was as if many small histories came together to compose a larger history, but without losing their own distinct self. I thought that, perhaps, the history of the EZLN could be told, looked at, and analyzed like that mirrored pot.
