it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry
Recommended for: chematrove technicians

Another bk for the "fossil memory" shelf.

"The (pointing) sound (lake) track (night) is (cathedral
nocturne) suddenly (amazon noon) conscious (giant clams)
of (vanguard clouding) itself (turning)."

The section entitled "Remote Control" begins:

"On Fossilization (Remember; the emotions you are feeling may
not be your own.)

"Of every seven years we are entirely re-composed. That from
which we are made, what we see out of, is completely trans-
formed in a transubstantiation of actuality. The replacement of
reality with fiction is the same process. The rug is pulled in front
of your eyes off a facsimile of itself. Remote control alien re-
placement of all that which you call tangible."

At the very end of the bk he begins "The Song of Remote Control" w/:

"Give yourselevs up to Remote Control.
There is no choice, either you come known
or not knowing. You come."

Some people read science journals & then write science fiction. Dewdney seems to read science journals & to then write semi-stream-of-consciousness mappings of the mind.
