On Narration

“If there are as many levels of narration as there are levels of consciousness, and if consciousness is like the matter it manifests: one subdivision begetting another subdivision thought to be the last subdivision until another subdivision is discovered, and this process repeats to the point where people, at their most explicit level of consciousness, throw their hands up in exasperation and exclaim, “Matter must go on forever!”—then the levels of consciousness, and the narrations that spring from them, are infinite.  It all goes somewhere; it all goes nowhere” – The Crawford Affair
