This may be my second Corpse Reviver #2 talking but I don't think it is wrong to make connections with the first story and Ballard's Vermillion Sands---at least tonally. Isis is like so of his time that he's into the year 2081, see you all there if I live to be one hundred. There is a dirty deep-web/occult feel to this that I am totally digging, like Alice fell down the wrong sinkhole and got mixed up with Jon Rafman and some freakazoids who wrote a dirty book--which perversely recalls the film Ordinary People--called The Cutest Girl in Class. You can bet that it won't take until 2081 for corporations to be raping my eyelids and siphoning my wallet while feeding me hot post-singularity/corporeality celebrity gossip through constant barrage visual interface. Flipping I see that the JI actually mentions Rainer Maria emo band, that's when I knew he could read my distant memories and make sense of them in a way I would never possess the tenacity to.
