As is a book with texts of only one sentence, where all the sentences start with: In the same way as ... Each sentence is a compilation of two sentences. In the same way as true meaning can only appear when all meaning is gone, the light that passes through the wing of the fly is the fly's journey. The book has common features with previous text collections such as And (2001) and I am (2009). All of these books have The Compact as their basic tone”, a collection of philosophical similes all beginning with the same phrase, together they form contemplative text that is part poem, part mantra.
