"Filled exactly with a pebbly meaning..."

A beautiful and devastating addition to McSweeney's Convergences Contest was posted a few days ago. If you haven't been following the Contest, which has been going on for about a year, I recommend you start; with each posting, I feel like a better human being. In his response to the winning convergence, Weschler mentions Sartre's insistance in Being and Nothingness that "a man is not a man the way a rock is a rock;" regardless, if a human is to be a human, then I think reocognition of convergence must be a central part of that humanity.
