Four Cups : Spheres of Substantial Solidity and Precarious Subliminal Stimuli
Neatly stacked A4s and a screensaver bumping gently against the edges of the screen. A general clearing of throats. Soft wrinkles on a technician’s forehead.
We would like to welcome you to join us at 7 at7, in an anticipatory fashion, to listen to the murmur of our water cooler.
“History does not wait for the sleepers to wake;
It is written by the wakeful alone.
What, from those hours of sleep, is worth the history books taking notice of and setting down?
Surplus hours of no benefit or purpose;
and yet the hours do not wither and fade away like pointless superfluity, but grow in number, night after night, to become a strange assemblage.
Strange, because unlike other assemblages,
these hours take on no weight worth mentioning
however numerous they become,
hovering perpetually in the background to no effect,
unaddressed; a neglected nook that all know and never speak of.”
