There is only one dialectic in this region, and it is between Tacoma and Seattle. No dialectic exists between Seattle and the other two—Everett and Bellevue. As a consequence these locations are unconscious. There is no consciousness (as in self-awareness) without a dialect. There can be an emanation, a pure glow that gradually diminishes into the thoughtless night (this is simply being there). But to be conscious there must be more than being just there; there must be a reflection: Seattle recognizes Tacoma and Tacoma recognizes Seattle. The name of this awareness is found in the name of our international airport and its location.
