This will come to pass by an improvement of sensual enjoyment. But first the notion that man has a body distinct from his soul, is tobe expunged; this I shall do, by printing in the infernal method, by corrosives, which in Hell are salutary and medicinal, melting apparent surfaces away, and displaying the infinite which was hid.

   If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is: infinite.

   For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.


*William Blake, Marriage of Heaven and Hell (1988:39)




“Electric technology fosters and encourages unification and involvement.”
