Not meaningless at all, but a prophecy of a mock sort of would-be Tory blue foX prevailing in my UK real-time overnight? Or a would-be Trump? Literature has pinch points as well as cruces. Only gestalt real-time reviewing can attempt to interpret them, perhaps. I keep my powder dry from even the holding pools.
“What a terrible thing it is to botch a farewell. I am a person who believes in form, in the harmony of order. Where we can, we must give things a meaningful shape. For example – I wonder – could you tell my jumbled story in exactly one hundred chapters, not one more, not one less? I’ll tell you, that’s one thing I have about my nickname, the way the number runs on forever. It’s important in life to conclude things properly. Only then can you let go.”
— Yann Martel (author of Life of Pi)
