The State of None – that is what they taught us to call it, that moment whenever We should think ourselves alone. What ever could not become an immediate substrate of critique was assumed in advance to lack the necessity whereby – existence, or – not.
That was the moment of truth – You missed it, didn’t You? There was a moment when every song playing on the radio seemed like it had been queued on your behalf, as though that love of the City had been turned upon you, as if the place where you most belong had heard of you and now knew you by name. Only now things are different somehow, as if the ensuing silence was just a part of the act which lovers are known to play. Yet the doubt remains intact: does she even know who you are? What you do? Your name? Date of birth? Your income? And if so, does she care? At this point even I would succumb to doubt, were it not for your imperturbability in the face of imminent failure and emotional collapse. So … don’t let Me – Don’t you dare let Us – down upon matters We do not ever wish you to comprehend. Believe in your success – that is all you need to do to be Our hero, in the end.
Those who stall under pressure of some immediate consequence of inaction are responding to the feeling of needing more time for the task at hand than the conditions of its Being undertaken have allowed. Correcting for this error of perception in communication should supercede any further complications as the original problem of noncommunication has been met head-on.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be discomfitted.

The world remembers that you left it, but will hear nothing of your return – that is, to the Real World, the World of Seeing and Believing. Whether there are other worlds does not alter the motions of the real one, any more than further research will show unto physicists the essentially parasitical nature of relativity. Chances are pretty good that most of them already know.
Q:Where does the time go? A:Why, where else but into the instrument that measured it? Perhaps reversing the direction of the deals will get you back some of that precious substance you have been wasting on air.
