The density of the generative image on the screen increases as the viscosity of the liquid in the inkstone ascends in the course of making water into ink. By the time the appropriate viscous ink is completed, the generative image pervades the whole screen. One eventually confronts the absolute black on the screen and finds the self stuck in the middle of it.
