law of the excluded middle

It is only a fearful lot, ones suspicious of their own shadows, who would polarize intimacy into extremes, discarding the bounty of potential that lies in the middle. Like an old black and white television with the contrast turned all the way up so that even gray is forced to pick sides, we have created a world where another person can be thought of only in terms of romantic or platonic and as dictated by their usefulness toward filling this or that need. The rainbow that dwells between these two extremes is lost in this dark age of man. For rainbows make themselves known by the refraction of light.
