cant seem to smoke enough cigarettes to distance the day . purposefully filling the time with anything to avoid the nothing underneath everything . trying hard to lay a glaze over these eyes to delude the world into being anything else . and now in this moment of unavoidable surfacing with a bitter taste i can still hear my thoughts burdening my lungs , each breath lived at bes as a full harsh sigh & the pauses between each one grows quiter & stretched until it hurts more to hide from the next breath than to breathe another .

Charles S. Peirce, "Logic of Events" (1898)

We start, then, with nothing, pure zero. But this is not the nothing of negation. For not means other than, and other is merely a synonym of the ordinal numeral second. As such it implies a first; while the present pure zero is prior to every first. The nothing of negation is the nothing of death, which comes second to, or after, everything. But this pure zero is the nothing of not having been born. There is no individual thing, no compulsion, outward nor inward, no law. It is the germinal nothing, in which the whole universe is involved or foreshadowed. As such, it is absolutely undefined and unlimited possibility -- boundless possibility. There is no compulsion and no law. It is boundless freedom.
