Everything is connected;
electrically, magnetically
and gravitationally.

Everything and Everyone
gets recycled and repurposed;
upcycled and downcycled.

"You" are the surface
of an expanding sphere
of electromagnetic
chemical information.
all human.


By accepting limits, failures and defeats,
we acknowledge that what lies beyond them as real.

The countries that are responsible
for the majority of ocean pollution
are the places the U.S.A. ships its Trash.

(we are embedded in the middle of a series of
hierarchical shells of informational complexity.)

Uroborus Batteries, Baby

Someone's rocking my dreamboat Someone's invading my dreams We were sailing along Peaceful and calm Suddenly something went wrong Someone's rocking my dreamboat Disturbing a beautiful dream But with love as my guide I'll follow the tide I'll keep sailing till i find you

(this is part of series utilizing the Poetry Machine 5000, which is fueled by crusty A.I. plastic refuse buildup.  The PM5K works by utilizing broken deep learning fragments as soil to germinate vibrant new dreams.  This is a similar process to that of grinding harvested ocean plastic trash to make new printer filament.  And it runs on neonatal Uroborus Batteries. Thus it is mentally ecological and self-sustaining.)
