Nigh, clarity dwells.

Subverting this age's ethos,

I rest silently

    This feels almost on the fringes of my understanding, not because it's too dense, but also, maybe. Lol. Nah, I'm kidding, I understand it, but I'm craving a sequel or follow-up, to address "this age's ethos." I suppose that's the point, to think about it and come to one's own conclusions. "Din" informs it enough, I think. Too much information = noise = din; the ethos of "I'm right" "these facts are the real facts" "consume this joke, this news, this controversy, and never stop!" The last line brings this into more clarity, the subversion of resisting all that noise and just being quiet and still, in body AND mind. At least, that's what I understand it to mean. (Sorry for the ramble...)
