“I think that within the mess of changes we’re experiencing, there’s a single difference that we feel most keenly; and it’s also the difference that future generations will find hardest to grasp. That is the end of absence—the loss of lack. The daydreaming silences in our lives are filled; the burning solitudes are extinguished.”

Michael Harris, The End of Absence: Reclaiming What We’ve Lost in a World of Constant Connection (Current, 2014), p. 8.
