Singular Answers

There is a human need to find singular answers to questions. There are, unfortunately and ironically, several kinds of 'singular'.

There is the 'singular' that is an apparently unique answer, the lazy form of which is the generic answer decorated and customised to look different from all other variants of the generic original.

There is the 'singular' that is odd, eccentric, deliberately made different from the usual. And in a culture of such singular tropisms, it is likely to be fairly common.

There is the 'singular' that assumes a convergent approach based on rules. That being so, it boils down to a multiplicity of interpretations or expressions of such rules.

And there are many more. But some, it should be said, are better than others.
