In the diary of Alistar Skinner, a young artist dying of colon cancer, as quoted by Sîan Ede on p. 150 of Art and Science, we read:
Awake at dawn to go to the toilet, I hear the black birds singing in the quiet of the urban night and it is lovely. How does that fit into cost per square meter?
Does "How does that fit into cost per square meter?" mean:
- How much will actually the birds' song cost per meter square
- How can one actually measure the beautiful birds' song with soulless and ugly scales like cost per square?
