THE FORCE OF GRAMMAR
Compared with the other fundamental forces of writing (punctuation, spelling and syntax), the force of grammar is extremely weak. It may appear powerful to everyday users, but if we consider how easily its effect on meaning can be cancelled out by something as small as a misplaced full stop, it becomes clear how much weaker it is. The DMRI is attempting to explain this imbalance in the hope that it will lead to a literary theory of everything (LToE).
The theory of grammar was first formulated by Professor Newton after he strolled through a library and observed the way in which the word “apple” fell into (and was modified by) the phrase “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. He famously remarked to his companion: “Why should it be that a noun does not fall sideways or up and away from the other words? And why can "apple" not be "apples" in this structure? There must be some sort of hidden force within the sentence.”
Although our understanding of grammar has come a long way since that first observation, we still don’t know why the force is so much weaker than the other fundamental forces of writing. The DMRI is investigating whether the solution to the problem can be found in grammar’s ability to move "off the page" and access other dimensions where dark meaning resides. The Institute is committed to shaking the substructure of all linguistic formations in order to create cracks in reality through which dark meaning, carried by the hypothetical grammaton particle, can enter the intelligible universe.
