In light of David's intentful prose, here is a segment from _The
Automorpher_ which is in step with this type of artful thinking:

(Scene IV)

Smooth sensual silicon
Silver like structures
running pulses of data. =20
Glistening chips, nanochips, small smaller smallest. =20
Animated realities, virtual realities, multiple selves. =20

A door opened quietly
And she walked into the room
her body smooth, supple

Her shoulders held back proud
a glimmer in her eye
and without notice
she brushes her hair away

How old are you? they asked.
How old are you?

A hesitation filled her=20
as she quickly assessed

My augmentation is three years now
my right hip five
ocular implants just two weeks
age reversal nearly nine

She took a sip of water
licking the droplets off her lips
her eyes glimmering hair a shimmering sterling,=20
her outer sheath like mulatto warm bronze

How old are you? they asked
How old are you?

And when she turned to leave the room
all eyes followed her form=20
just to realize before she left
She was not yet born

(Scene V - a declaration)

Do you know your mythic presence?=20
You must know your mythic present.
Out of the stockade of stereotypical thinking,
idle beliefs, negative-newsmaking,=20
stagnant relationships or
the voice of mythic collective identity.
Turn-off the haze, tune-up the mind.

Create new myths.
Your mythic heroes become a composit of many.
Prometheus, Nietzsche,=20
Camille Paglia or Da Vinci=20
Who do you admire? =20
Design a concept =97 design a Hero.

Learn about your genes and the evolution of memes.
Recognize that what you pay attention to will be
incorporated in your thinking. =20
What you think is what you are.
Think artfully.

Sculpt your being as you would a great masterpiece.
Master intelligent thinking.=20
Render flexibility, optimism, inventiveness.
The concept of art is not standing still
