Table Forty-One: Joseph Suglia

Infinite questions, there is an infinitude of questions, but they are all permutations of the same question.

The question is: Why is there a world?

No one can answer this essential question, and so we look around ourselves and must conclude:

Stupidity, there is only stupidity.

Stupidity is the ocean in which you will drown.

The nauseatingly groundless abyss of infinite stupidity.

Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity. Infinite stupidity.

    1. That was the beginning of Ecclesiastes. Here’s an interesting flip – unlike this book, which ENDS on on that rather nihilistic note (something to nothing, broadly speaking), the Teacher had a conclusion, a moral (nothing to something), ending with these words:
      “Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body. Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.”

  1. I was going to disagree with this conclusion, then read other comments to this Table, which seem somewhat, if not infinitely, stupid. Thanks for a very different reading experience. Enjoyed the cadence and rhythm of the novel’s language.

  2. “Why is there a world” isn’t really the question after all – it has no meaning for the universe – unless you are looking for an explanation of physics. But I do recall a quote used in an old scifi (Asimov?): against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.

  3. Ecclesiastes 12:8 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.1 “Everything is meaningless!” 9 Not only was the Teacher wise, but he also imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs. 10 The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true. 11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails–given by one shepherd.1 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body. 13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. 14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

    Your “infinite stupidity” did make me LOL–and that’s not bad! ~!-
