Work needs to be viewed differently. Work can be viewed as a protest against nonexistence but, even more, it can be viewed as an act of worship in the face of the possibility of the ultimate. Elsewhere in my writing I have spoken of nonexistence as zero and existence as “at least” plus one. I have also spoken of the absence of the ultimate as a zero, and the possibility of the ultimate as “at least” 0.5. I do not want to debate the mathematical possibilities. Any scholar that does so may miss the point. The point is (at least for this observation) that existence is predication and work is the predication of myself into the world. This predication can be more than a protest against nonexistence. It can also be an act of worship even with just the possibility of the ultimate.
