1. On the Egyptian Hieroglyphic symbol of the Ejaculating Phallus

WSB (pulling his paintings out from stacks, looking for one symbol in particular, which is a recurring motif in both his painting and his writing. He pulls one out for the apprentice, and then another…)

(An) ejaculating phallus. That is for standing up! Giving evidence. An ejaculating prick.

SE
An ejaculating prick is.. is ..“giving evidence?”

WSB
Yes. Giving evidence.

SE
An ejaculating prick is giving evidence!

WSB
That’s right…

SE
That’s… how they…?

WSB
The guy comes in, jacks off, and they say, “Well that’s enough, you’re telling the truth.”
Because what truth! What more truth is there? Than an ejaculating phallus?
That means, whoever ejaculated, really believed in what he was doing! You see what I mean?
