Small Mercies

Thankfully, I've only heard one person so far use the phrase "hiding the ball." Well, two people, but one of them was a professor. Here's what I think about it - and I apologize for referencing The Matrix, really I do, but like you I'm a prisoner of my culture, such as it is:
"Don't try to find the ball. That's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth: there is no ball."
Welcome to the law.

No, there is no spoon. There's hella ball. "Keep your eyes on the ball" the sages say, which goes I guess with never minding the spoon it's in, since it's like something a three year-old can do and really not a place to pause in personal development.
