Spritual Now

Sarah Walkowiak of Denver attempted to pick my brain cell by asking: "Do the two stone/metal heads that appear on the cover of The Division Bell have any significance, or are they just there to look interesting and confuse fans?"

Gilmour said he doesn't believe in a spiritual afterlife, but rather a spiritual now.  That is, once life ends all is black, so you better grab your bliss while you can.  Thus searching for the meaning of life requires a person to reach deep inside themselves to unlock the riddle.  Could the reflective faces on The Division Bell be a visual metaphor for such a quest?  And alas something the Publius hunters have failed to train their eyes upon.  What a shame.
