Not what, but how things mean.
By: Joshua Glenn
“What on Earth can it mean?”
Olaf Stapledon’s ODD JOHN
A “shadow” surrounded by a bright ring-like structure.
Frederik Pohl and C.M. Kornbluth’s THE SPACE MERCHANTS
“Don’t fight forces, use them.”
Muriel Jaeger’s THE MAN WITH SIX SENSES
Doodle Diffusion schema
David Lindsay’s A VOYAGE TO ARCTURUS
“Then felt I like some watcher of the skies / When a new planet swims into his ken.”
Jarry’s EXPLOITS AND OPINIONS OF DR. FAUSTROLL, PATAPHYSICIAN
“A world within a world!”
“So elementary… inchoate… a disjunctive… patchwork.”
“There is neither a here nor a beyond but the great unity.”
Why is there something rather than nothing?
