There is a difference between a Man and a Woman. Pirsig suggested there is
a difference between indefinable reality and definable reality. I would
suggest that "difference" can be a metaphysical concept. Evolution defines
existence in levels in reality, not just physical differences between male
and female. How many levels in an evolution in existence?
Pirsig suggests that DQ, indefinable, like creation, be interpreted
metaphysically not mathematically. DQ is indefinable. For a long time I
accepted evolution as a difference in kind rather than a difference in
existence. Is there an order in existence? Using male and female as
foundational concepts which gender is more closely allied to DQ, to SQ?
Adam was described as naming things. Eve ate the apple. At least one was
more practical for continuing existence than the other.
