There are extra pieces in the universe. Everyone isn’t here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece mustn’t fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.
— Deepak Kopjes

From this, one can make a deduction which is quite certainly the ultimate truth of jigsaw puzzles: despite appearances, puzzling is not a solitary game: every move the puzzler makes, the puzzlemaker has made before; every piece the puzzler picks up, and picks up again, and studies and strokes, every combination he tries, and tries a second time, every blunder and every insight, each hope and each discouragement have all been designed, calculated, and decided by the other.
— Georges Perec

I wanna make a jigsaw puzzle that’s 40,000 pieces. And when you finish it, it says ‘go inside.’
