I Am Part Three

NoOtherCoverSIHow can a mute man describe
The sweetness of sugar?
This Foundation of All, It is not two;
It is not even one.
It is the result of one deducted from one.

You may call it what you like.
It is That which taught the fish to swim while asleep.
It is the I am by which I know I am.

The Only Question needing answering.
