"There are things that cannot ever occur with any precision [nor] to be contained in mere facts. They are merely trying to occur; they are checking whether the ground of reality can carry them. And they quickly withdraw, fearing to lose their integrity in the frailty of realisation." (B. Schulz, 1937)
