The Great Silence by Ted Chiang

This story is maddeningly beautiful. It reminds me of the best Borges stories that have a simple twist of logic that exposes an irony. It’s a riddle told in the most basic of ways. I want there to be more to it. More drama. More dance. But that belies the simple truth essential to its understanding. Fine work by a fine writer.

Side note: I really dig the notes that explain the context of the story and getting to know more about the writer and the editor through their bios. Well done.
