The writer, The All and the injustice of being human

«Egor was speaking again: ‘But most people – or let us say, most writers – will never reach The All. They will never even become geniuses. They will never become anything. I… I am one of them. But at least I know this and try to express this powerlessness through everything I write. I know that nothing can be said, that no one expects you to say anything, but that you must say it. I know you must somehow go against the injustice of being human and being unable to reach The All’
