And Now, There Were Only One

The art of clarification, like the art of negotiation, is often simply the art of displacing difficulties.  There is, one might say, a kind of untouchable reserve of incomprehensibility in certain things that the calculations of human intelligence are capable neither of removing nor of diminishing, but only of arranging this way or that, sometimes leaving everything in a half-light, at another time illuminating certain points at the expense of others, which are then submerged by a darkness even deeper than before.
-A.A. Cournot
