There, one perpetually bathes in the conditions for sheer boredom. And yet invisible divinities build up a net of directions, slopes and signs, a secret and living frame. No more uniformity. Everything takes up a definite position. Even one silence is unlike another silence.
... Man is first animated by invisible solicitations.
~ Anthoine de Saint-Exupery, @ Brain Pickings
