Quote #10

I've brought only two provisions: a box of pad thai and Perry's book. Thick. Ancient. Bound in leather. I open it to the middle. An unfinished sentence in some language I've never seen, and beyond it, nothing. An epic tome of empty pages, blank white and waiting. (2.7.98)

This book R sees in his dream might as well be The Complete, Unabridged Story of Humanity. It's only written up to a point, this one, and R sees that he has the power to decide what gets written on its future pages.
