We need to remember

the value of nothing.

It’s like breathing: you can’t inhale all day.

We need to learn to make peace with the information we don’t know,

to embrace the zeroes,

to relearn the pleasures of hunger, need, interruption, restraint.

We need to work up our ignorance muscles.

We need to organize our internal absences to create meaning.

We are responsible, in other words,

now and forever,

for our own deletionism.”
