A lot of history indicated there
Indeed. An heirloom. It (a tureen and four soup bowls) slumbered in the cellar for almost exactly 25 years. And we had never before looked underneath.
I wonder what is underneath that upturned cup...
Just air inside the inside of a cup, I suspect.
although I think it may be an upturned bowl... but nothing is certain except uncertainty.
We cannot know what is under that upturned cup/bowl, it has not been revealed to us...
Ah, dear friends, what a pleasure to leave you in suspense for a time being. :)
And even if you reveal what was found underneath when you lift it up we cannot be sure that is what was underneath beforehand... Schrodinger's mouse, perhaps? A crystal of Omnium? An invisible hand guiding everything? Life is so perplexing, obviously.
The more things change, eh?
Or rather: The more reason to change things.
