Here is the unfolding of some sort of debate, or perhaps a collection of them. The opinions and perspectives are fragmented, discolored in relation to others. Rifts have been created among this cast of characters, with some of them displaced, scattered, though they nevertheless remain part of the narrative, the big picture. Most of these figures are vying with one another, in various states of clarity with respect to their neighbors. Faces are unintelligible, as we often find the rationale and opinions of others. Yet, note the posture and profile of the figure far left, whose features seem most defined. Content with being still, with listening and observing, he is the most composed, most fully-formed of this council.
