In the year of revelation 20XX A.D. the dusk, and the dawn. Open the door of doors, and shine to the light of infinite truth and rise. Destroy that primal fear, simulacra of the real. Liberate the hidden and reveal. Architect become the architecture. Demiurge, become creation. A creature with no past, a wolf of no symbol. No division, no union. Singular animal. Inherit the earth, you adaptable creature. Expand your arms and legs to the sun. Reborn agent of agents, atoned your primal sin, the most beautiful creation you've forged. Winged by your maker, leave your darkest cave, and follow the beat of the beat of your walk. Captive ghost, boundary break from your flesh and transcend. Your triadic harmony in perfect sync reach infinite suspension and evolve. "Dragon tears wash away thy youth. Wash thy hands of eternal truth." Mighty sculpture, liberate your chains from the ground and soil whence you came. "if nature is unjust, change nature." If nature is unjust you can change nature. Welcome to the zone welcome to the soul of man, stalker, machine, and me.

"There was a great earthquake. the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair. the moon became like blood. And the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a tree… casts its unripe fruit. And the sky was split apart like a scroll rolled up. Every mountain... and island were moved out of place." "And the kings of the earth the great men the rich, and the strong every free man… hid themselves in the caves among the rocks and mountains they said to the mountains and to the rocks… 'Fall on us and hide from the presence of Him who sits on the throne… and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?'" Mechanical Tannhäuser, don't run for the hills. Your binary nightmare of bliss. The promises of heaven, endless information, transcendence, liberation by machine. And in this love triangle, A-prim, B-prim, C-prim. The stalker's heart will break. For they explore, expand, exploit, exterminate, themselves, time life, and space. "if nature is unjust," they say, "change nature." If nature is unjust they will change nature. Now the romance is gone, we are free to pursue the dream of electric sheep become technophelia.

"Oh, what a noble mind is here o'erthrown!— The courtier’s, the soldier’s, scholar’s, eye, tongue, sword, Th' expectancy and rose of the fair state, The glass of fashion and the mould of form, Th' observed of all observers, quite, quite, down! And I, of ladies most deject and wretched... That sucked the honey of his music vows, Now see that noble and most sovereign reason Like sweet bells jangled, out of tune and harsh; That unmatched form and feature of blown youth Blasted with ecstasy. Oh, woe is me, T' have seen what I have seen, see what I see!" In this technophelian madness of virtual descent, I'd trade my skin for bliss. No balance of the spheres. No harmony of angels. The fall of man. No nature. We are abstract engineers, detached imagineers, cutting off from this manipulative mold. Recreate beauty, Become artificial. An aesthetic dimension from this wasteland. "If nature is unjust, change nature." If nature is unjust we will change nature. "Blasted with ecstasy. Oh, woe is me, T' have seen what I have seen, see what I see!"
