Thanks to the Collins English Dictionary 4th edition, for insight to the realm of words. Conspire 2, to act together towards some end as if by design, from old French conspirer, from Latin conspirare, to plot together, literally: to breathe together, from spirare to breathe.

Different parts of an individual act together, they conspire to convey a continuity of feeling towards some end as if by design. Words act together, they conspire, contracting and expanding away from the original feeling when putting pen to paper, words can’t convey original feelings. Breathing in and out, conspire, acting together towards some end as if by design. Maybe breathing is at the top of the conspire list, contracting and expanding, acting together towards some end, our life, our equality, by design. Do we conspire, is it a theory, can we live without it?
