So out of computer chips
and satellited nets
the last noise about us
escapes to evolving sound.
Whatever woven bodies
they might later take,
has all been told before:
In Bach's B Minor Mass,
the Sanctus is the space
that time prepared for us.
William Irwin Thompson

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
William Shakespeare
