If you are a poet, you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in this sheet of paper. Without a cloud, there will be no rain; without rain, the trees cannot grow; and without trees, we cannot make paper. So we can say that the cloud and the paper “inter-are.” We cannot just be by ourselves alone; we have to inter-be with every other thing.
