Forgot to question the immobility of marks. And of the spaces between them factoring a dislocation, stasis - binary pairs scarcely aware of each other's presence just across the gap. Then in the absence of the engram thought each would completely fill lexical space while still retaining the capacity for motion? In which case they would have to be infinitely interpenetrating, no strand of any at which you could tug which would not immediately pull that of another. Definition a matter of degree, permanence a gap in perception. Traceless waves constantly under renewal, the fractured world which you wake up every morning as much a construction as the One. But constructions made out of what, electricity? And what might that be? Access to ground denied.
