Infinitely invisible: What is seen on the surface of granite for example hides interior grains. The granularity of the world is always already inaccessible; art serves to make symbol of substance; of the surface of substance; of the cloak or masquerade. Art is farming-out; physical analysis is farming-out; microscopy is farming-out. Microscopes/telescopes reveal everything and nothing; occurrences continue on ontologically-cohering n-dimensional manifolds. Everything is what it appears to be; nothing is what it appears to be; everything is leveled, intertwined, intermingled, mingled, muxed. Ontology only goes so far to the portal of universal origin, "big bang" and inflation, just as increased accelerator energy may conceivably generate "new" and unexpected phenomena forever - the only limitation is economics (Brillouin). Nothing satisfies; ontologies may be enumerated, epistemologies extended to theoretically-infinite tolerances; it is all the same - not ennui (that surely is different) or boredom (that surely is different as well) or defuge (the same). One might say this is a "condition of the age." Of course there is no thing-in-itself; there are always already others.
