the work on this site is almost complete: the entry port for the
and a transmitter.
shows the microchip)
crystal has a curious history in this respect!
replaces the chip & puts on his sunglasses slowly)
my wiring is complete
will be able to transmit the totality of my sensorium,
that it can be shared by anyone with an appropriate program:
will be able to transmit the totality of my experience

replaces the chip. here, his head, has become the site of it all)

only to a certain past stage of our stupendous evolution!

all the stories known and unknown.
and Space will no longer limit us, and we will fly up out of the prison
this overcrowded planet Earth has become.
