"The Library of Babel is a vision of almost infinite despair, of a longing for coherence and meaning drowned under an
impossible weight of incoherence and meaninglessness. But in Borges' Library there is still room for mysticism. The denizens
of the infinite library whisper of a mythical gallery, a 'Crimson Hexagon.' Within this gallery is contained the One Book
that is the answer to all other books, an Index of Indexes, containing within itself the key to the hidden coherence and
meaning of the entire cosmic library. To find the Crimson Hexagon and to read the Book is to transcend despair and self and
the library itself, to become analogous to God."
