About the Cover

The cover is a symbol of balance that came out of a small-group discussion on

nonviolence culture at the 1992 Nv Gathering. Don't let its symmetry and

closure fool you, it is only an approximate model, to be modified or

discarded when its usefulness has passed. In particular some felt that

emotion deserved its own segment. The boundaries in this diagram are, of

course, illusory, as are all boundaries. The colours were chosen to be

equilaterally opposed on a colour wheel.

Printing and some artwork by Marshall Arts, 24 Industrial Ave, Wacol.
