The swing takes up the most daring challenge of all. It must persuade Man to temporarily abandon all sense of security and control.
To keep one’s mind brisk and spry it is crucial to release it from its own habits and wonts. To free Man from his ever unfailing sense of duty he must be introduced to the notion of play. What better way to achieve this than challenging the power of gravity on the erratic sway of the swing?
When Man regrasps control, after experiencing the favorable effects of play, his mind suddenly leaps to new insights. No mastery without release.
