We are not really into counting. We go for the Spirit of the Thing or Things. This disinterest on our part makes it hard to tell you how many years or pounds or families or distance, well, lots of things. The appeal of specifics escapes Us.
Humans seem fascinated with particulars, and make many lists which you put in prominent places. Looking at a list often does not clarify anything for Us, but We cheerfully pass on the data to you; why not?- it’s your data. Many numbers: seventy, eleven. Enjoy.
The Rhino shelves of your home library should help here. You just look Us up when you want “facts”. That is how books work, We are told. Our system of records is based on scent, so books don’t figure much in the Big Scheme of Things. Sniffing Concepts is our approach to most everything.
You and We don’t have to share methods, just Good Will.
