Both Sides of the Strip Mall

The Heretic was thinking about expanding perspectives and decided to go to the museum to see cubist art. The cubists were trying to see objects from both the front and the back at the same time. The Heretic never made it to the museum because he had to go to the strip mall first.

Expanding Perspective

Go to a drugstore chain and buy a pocket mirror. When you leave walk to the back corner of the building and use the mirror to look around the edge to the back. Imagine the strings of decisions and people and energy necessary to get your stuff to you. On the ground behind the building is a piece of discarded metal. Look at it in the mirror. Seeing things attracts them. Imagine that the mirror is a magnet, making the metal bigger than it really is. The metal is a clue in the mystery of your stuff.
