The Too Easy: a collection of not overly convoluted, not overly worked upon fragments

There is an opening gambit, adapted from Magritte, that seeks to immediately condense into two basic moves, the difficulties belonging to all subjective deployments of representational motifs. The gambit begins with the uttered statement, “our flag is inscribed with the statement,‘we have no flag.’” However, the opening is only fully articulated with the second move, which is also manifested in the form of a statement: ‘and we have not inscribed this.’ There is some uncertainty amongst theorists of the gambit whether the second statement is most effectively located within the utterance, or upon the flag. The confusion itself is subsequent to several possible controversies surrounding the real world feasibility of a 'we' that is entirely unrelated to its flag.
