Mystery Achievement Afterthought

I finish the post, I sit down to read, and there as the epigraph to my book (Mike Heller's Uncertain Poetries) I find this answer to the "modal difficulty" question:

Even now poetic men...still seek the limits of knowledge, indeed preferably of skepticism, in order to brek free of the spell of logic. They want uncertainty, because then the magician, intimations, and the great sentiments become possible again."
--from On the Poet (1875), by Friedrich Nietzsche
Magic, intimations, and "the great sentiments": yup, I'd buy that.

Call now! Operators are standing by!

(Don't help me much with Lang Po, do it, though?)
