The shadow knows

Perhaps, with the help of shadow hammers and chisels, it's our shadow hands that make the shady contours that we see around all the real stones which our real hands fit into the wall. Perhaps all the shadows in the wall are what create the secret 'glue' that keeps the wall together. Maybe its not what we bring to the wall that makes it a wall at all, but what we take away. We take away the light. We obstruct the sunlight and leave a pattern of shadows and end up with nothing else but some interesting reflections on what walls are made of.
