Enjoyed the universe, learning more about Dirk et al, but it felt too rushed at the end. Much like this two sentence review, I needed more.

David Foster Wallace
“There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says "Morning, boys. How's the water?" And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes "What the hell is water?”
David Foster Wallace, This Is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life

Jacques Derrida
“I always dream of a pen that would be a syringe.”
Jacques Derrida, Jacques Derrida

Tom Wolfe
“A glorious place, a glorious age, I tell you! A very Neon renaissance - And the myths that actually touched you at that time - not Hercules, Orpheus, Ulysses and Aeneas - but Superman, Captain Marvel, and Batman.”
Tom Wolfe

Chuck Palahniuk
“Maybe the only thing each of us can see is our own shadow.

Carl Jung called this his shadow work. He said we never see others. Instead we see only aspects of ourselves that fall over them. Shadows. Projections. Our associations.

The same way old painters would sit in a tiny dark room and trace the image of what stood outside a tiny window, in the bright sunlight.

The camera obscura.

Not the exact image, but everything reversed or upside down.”
Chuck Palahniuk

Chuck Palahniuk
“Being tired isn't the same as being rich, but most times it's close enough.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
