End language end reason - begin compression and decompression.
Memory records and memory traces. Nature hears nurture's voice in the movements of particles
through membrane channels - painfully, extended.

Inside the membrane, caressing fleeting impulses,impulses into infinity,
whispers into space:

When I'm alone, I want you to enter inside me, I wish to wear you. 
Dissolved and integrated, we are exploded into a nomadic, unstable topology 
of ceramic ribbons and microfluidic channels, 
of myriad phosphorescent gleams of the unassailable transpositions
of the visible signs of the invisible and mysterious encounters 
in divisible dreams.

0.5 way between reality and dream.
realistic scenery and lighting to cultivate the illusion.

scienza sine ars nihil est.
