Theory Of Nothing

or Just Theory

Unending Beginnings & Usurping Footnotes

I have been doing my PhD for 4 years.

I am writing Chapter 1 of my dissertation.

Chapter 1 was supposed to be 8,000 words long.

I began Chapter 1 with an epigraph.

I have been writing about Chapter 1’s epigraph.

So far, I have written more than 10,000 words on Chapter 1’s epigraph.

I am still writing about Chapter 1’s epigraph.

I will write the rest of Chapter 1 when I’m done with writing about Chapter 1’s epigraph.

Obviously, Chapter 1 is no longer just 8,000 words long.

It is going to be much longer than 8,000 words.

How long?

As long as it takes for the footnotes to become longer than the main text.

So far, I have 107 footnotes.

I love Theory Of Nothing.
