"When you point out the moon to Willis..."

Nadia Khiari: WillisFromTunis, October 8, 2014.
When you point out the moon to an imbecile, he will be looking at your finger.
When you point out the moon to Willis....

The imbecile or the innocent does not understand the notion of a beyond, but relates to the physical presence. Thus our reason for declaring someone imbecile and/or innocent.

But in pointing out there is also an element of convention ("Look, this is how you should perceive the world") or of deception ("Look away, look over there instead"). And so the cartoonist returns to where the insistence originated and gnashes to the bone of it. Never take anything a point value, least of all the response of the cartoonist.
