"Calling (an) object something, naming it, doesn't make it 'something,' it only makes it what the mind says it is, though something seems to remain in the silence after the words have faded away. (This object) now floats free of the mooring to definition and becomes empty and almost translucent yet somehow silently connected with the rest of the muted world. The silence we now find ourselves in may be a clue to the object's true nature, but let's keep this inquiry alive and see where it takes us."
