and finally there was the sleepless night
when i decided to explore and fight
the foul, the inadmissible abyss,
devoting all my twisted life to this

Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t.
                                      The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.

You are the only person that I would allow to be shrunken down to a microscopic size and swim inside me in a tiny submersible machine.

I finished reading Infinite Jest today. At first I felt unsatisfied with the ending but then I re-read the first sixteen pages or so and realised what had happened and it kind of broke my heart to realise that everything that had happened had happened just because Himself wanted to be closer to Hal, his son, and for Hal to act like and feel like and be a real person. And finding out how Hal was going to end up at the very beginning of the novel made it more painful as you got to know him anyway, but seeing how Himself’s wraith actively made him turn into that, not maliciously but just because he fucking loves him and wants to communicate with him, just makes it crushing.

What does the wave say? If I were to die, in the midst of cold mountains, unknown to the world, cast off by my people, my strength at last exhausted, the sea would at the final moment flood into my cell, come to raise me above myself and help me die without hatred.
The Sea Close By, Albert Camus.
