Neither you, nor the coeditors you shared it with will be able to recover it again. Progress is a comfortable disease: your victim death and life safely beyond plays with the bigness of his littleness —electrons deify one razorblade into a mountainrange;lenses extend unwish through curving wherewhen till unwish returns on its unself. So then we are alright and comfortable with our obsessions. It's a wonder that this incensed and articulate indictment doesn't put some of us off the insensibility of the disparity between this death and the meaning of the season. A world of made is not a world of born --- pity poor flesh and trees, poor stars and stones, but never this fine specimen of hypermagical ultraomnipotence.

It makes it even more astonishing and visionary of course , although I like the 2nd phrase in and on itself stil best. This, however, may not be entirely negative.

Progress is a comfortable disease: your victim death and life safely beyond plays with the bigness of his littleness -- electrons deify one razorblade into a mountainrange; lenses extend unwish through curving wherewhen till unwish returns on its unself.
