SECRET CHIEFS

Strangely, these are not the symmetries we were programmed to expect,
not the fins, the streamlined corners, pylons, or simple solid geometries
of the official version at all–That’s for the ribbon clerks back on the Tour,
in the numbered stollen. No, this Rocket City, so whitely lit against the calm
dimness of space, is set up deliberately To Avoid Symmetry, Allow Complexity,
Introduce Terror (from the Preamble to the Articles of Immachination)– but
tourists have to connect the look of it back to things they remember from their
times and planet–back to the wine bottle smashed in the basin, the bristlecone
pines outracing Death for milllenia, concrete roads abandoned years ago, hairdos
of the late 1930s, indole molecules, especially “polymerized” indoles, as in Imipolex

It means this War was never political at all, the politics was all theater, all just to
keep the people distracted…secretly, it was being dictated by the needs of technology…by a conspiracy between human beings and techiques, by something
that needed the energy-burst of war, crying, “Money be damned, the very life of
[insert name of Nation] is at stake, but meaning, most likely, dawn is nearly here,
I need my night’s blood, my funding, funding, ahh more…The real crises were crises
of allocation and priorities, not among firms–it was only staged to look that way–
but among the different Technologies, Plastics, Electronics, Aircraft, and their needs which are understood only by the ruling elite…
