In Between Things...

...trying to read Scott Bakker's The Darkness that Comes Before.  A well-stated thought: 
 Achamian fully understood the geometry of Nautzera's world.  It had once been his own.  For Nautzera, there was no present, only the clamor of a harrowing past and the threat of a corresponding future.  For Nautzera, the present had receded to a point, had become the precarious fulcrum whereby history leveraged destiny.  A mere formality.

I know people like that!

- Pope Benedict XVI
