‘chiefly designed to resist our efforts’

‘Because of its ability to both offer and withhold, the computer is a seductive medium in which much of the pleasure lies in the sustained engagement, the refusal of climax.’

‘How can we have catharsis in a medium that resists closure?
It’s painful to break from immersive trance into the chilly air of reality.’

‘One does not reach closure, one creates it.
Closure as exhaustion, not as completion.’
