For some time I have been consumed by the notion of dualism. In particular, Im increasingly aware of the constant effort required of me to maintain my own sensitivity to the hairs breadth that separates artworks that result from inner ambition from ones that are merely the outcome of a temporary desire for fleeting relevance.

What follows is a kind of reading of your email exchange with Phong, written mostly in the conditional tense.
