In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"It was once just an old sand lot sitting in nothing and surrounded by other sand lots. The lot lay content in doing nothing. Large grains of sand shifted; water spilled over rocks and stones and filtered into deep crevices. But nothing moved under its own power, for power was as of now, not. Only passive parts, waiting."
Ciuffini, Joseph M.
