Towering above all other features of the logological landscape are palindromes. Enveloped in a majestic, icy, unapproachable grandeur all their own, their perfect symmetry or balance has symbolized the eternal in a changing world - for more than 2000 years. Palindromes therefore constitute the logological equivalent of an archetypal Platonic form - a form which all else reflects imperfectly, and to which it aspires, but which nothing else can ever attain.
