More 'fossil memory', more geology & remote control, Dewndey themes, "A Natural History of Southwestern Ontario Books I & II" from an unnatural intelligence.

"There is nothing arbitrary in the predestined universe of the past. Emerald crystal caves in hot black tar. Cloudy airport haze and warm afternoons. Basement parties & guests annihilated in gasoline pools that burst into flame. Moon passing behind fast night clouds. Hot wind and moth tunnels traced by pheromones. There are conferences to which we are interminably drawn over which forces other than human preside.

"One hears the nervous tapping of fingers.

"I am walking south on Wharncliffe Road, everything is working by remote control."
