Every morning we opened the dictionary at random, chose a word there, and said it aloud, repeatedly, for hours on end. In this way we divested the word of meaning. We estimated it would take several generations to remove all meaning from all words in the dictionary. It was a project we thought worthy of passing on to our children and their children and their children. And their children after that. And the children of those children. For generations of children, our gift would be the joy of pure being. Our children’s children’s children’s children’s children would know pure knowledge.
