House Head

Willy B., as we all know, is quite the imaginative man. He can often be found in the throes of a spiritual revery, or waxing poetic on the nature of the soul, or animatedly acting out a fanciful story he has recently concocted. But he also builds memory palaces. They are full of chambers, which are full of symbols, which are full of meaning. Kierkegaard once wrote: “In relation to systems most systematizers are like a man who builds an enormous castle and lives in a shack nearby; they do not live in their own enormous systematic buildings.” Not true of Willy B. Oh no! he is like the turtle of systematizers, he always has his dwelling place on his “back.”
