You need to build an ability to just be yourself and not be doing something. That’s what the phones are taking away, the ability to just sit there. That’s being a person. Because underneath everything in your life, there is that THING, that empty—FOREVER empty. That knowledge that it’s all for NOTHING and that you’re ALONE. 

It’s down there. … Let the sadness crush you.
