n’thorder side-step-Rerhesymbol interabred and threis-rhemoved: a reality corresponding with illusion.

9 symbiontic cellves interredeferrent and intradereferrent, seemingly unseemly, and equatable only be-cause of (that is to sway, due to to(o).0)) their diference
Symballistic Pheonix, his fiery flight fl(uid)edgingly afore, and why empty sk(e)ins rise, or;



.   .   .”Alright class, feel towards the front of the room; its high time to low suns we got started.” The teaching-one excre/A\ted in a signewsoi(da)l pphhfffpt! re(ass)embleming an at-tempt at communirelation with the rough assymblage of assemb(i)l(l)ed learning-ones. Today’s was a particularly enthusiastic pphhfffpt! which, could quales swim, would have sounded rather like what one expects a large number of very small piecilia of wet flesh flapping against themselves would sound like if ears could hear themself hearing(./ themself.).   .   .

Intermittent Torsoe Notes1
1: P.M – with each diurnal revolt we rise and fall to hump time into existence [which is synonymous with itself].
2: a.) having not amassi’ved the self, you owe the messy masses.
b.) “you” and us as owing.
b.n) other as duty as perversely-inversed techne-ques of ontic legitimation
3: That is, I be G. A given god remade through the sun haunted by his holey ghost.

Bifurcational Footnotes1, 2
1: Note to somelsewhenself: Next time leave more headroom for the footnotes, even at expense of the main body.

Fractal Footware
1: I didn’t know feet could cum equipped with prosthetic phalli (such being the industry-standard apparatus for bifurcation).
2: Does Meta count if generality unfurls from the slick folds of down-undher rather than bedrock on high? Or does it mettar?

An una-bashed series if ideoughtomatic deigressions:
The Janus-phasespace and Manus-interface of abstraction is rather large, (esp.) after all.
And what am I if not a phases(-)pace, or at least a series of phases and places?
Were the toetaptoptipped ends of an I originally oppositionally pointed arrowheads that 1 gought jailous ov and sew flattened them out, much as the column below him, supposting his bust?

:Uni-Verse-All Touring De-Vice:

We should think (of/as/with) the brain

Not as computer, which without

Us |as well| isn’t really sane.

A brain is not sum clean smithroute

Of austere schemechantics lain

Without ambigrewency flout;

A brain beholds what doth not remain;

A brain is frontfuzzy mythdoubt,

Wa(i)s) doubt to conquer doubt’s plain bane.

A brain a disingenuious lout!

Self e’er-air was the will to feign,

Is whence and hence in bout

Aterminal-eternal. Pain

Is blaine is brain (even without

Re{-}ceptors for such), and in Cain

Lies our virtue – an exi’ll clout

And jea|lousy sickness ‘tward vain

Conceit the coredoor of God stout

With deimon(ad)ism(e): cane;

A thickness of narrowtude. Spout

F(o)r(o)thed recombinatory ræin

F(o)r(o)thed in stead of deter(-)mined drought.

A brain not a complexcit strain

Of computer; Janus about-

Face: computer but(t) an arcane


And holey rudi|mental vein

Of brain just as mason and grout

is house as symbol as deft chain

Between insulated winds ~scout

As disincarnate eyes to rein

The unconnectable about

Itsunself and to teletain

That that cannot be/held allout

In the hand and manned (or contained

Separatelly) by man revout

By man’s own man(a)us mindomain;

As utile emptiness throughought;

A placed spaceholder to obtain

Amb(igrow)sia well and devout

Menterrain the sacred profane.

A brain is a route rout-wrote out

Upon itsinself; both æroplane

(Not steamlined but streamwhorled ‘round about)

Whose lift its thrust – camping its campai(g)n –

And the (more or less?) plainguage tout

Deferred reference e(n)v(ir)oplane

(Axiomating axes pout

Like lips lapped into else trueout)

And again an again in again

Out throughout an(d) out in(side) out.

Computer a weak brain a glout

Interverted rather than constrained

Alternativertive, fallout

Smelter just as yore ol’ chaingrained

Mechanima lattices out

To m(i.e)m(i.e)tic mind – just as shout

Of language bounding in(-/ )germane

Symbol grounding qualia sprout

From base reaction an uroute.
