"The Growth of Books" an allay

 This is a section from my upcoming book, Allreading. The book is the second from my series, the Perfect Idius, a sequal to The Life of Allism. The book is interested in the best way to intelligently read, especially how to read the Allistic form called "allays," which is the dominant form of poetical essay in this series. This particular essay takes scripture and religion as a departure point for how books and ideas not only change meaning over time, and thus grow and mature, but that their original context also changes and evolves so that their original meaning is literally lost, we have no true grasp of what a book originally meant -- no scholarly apparatus could recover it. Special emphasis is placed on "Great Books" as requiring thousands of years to be read.

Take care, Caretakers,
