Long Live….

Long live the beauty that comes down and through and onto all of us.

—singer-songwriter Laurie Anderson

Long live impudence! It’s my guardian angel in this world.

—Albert Einstein

Long live the weeds that overwhelm
My narrow vegetable realm !—
The bitter rock, the barren soil
That force the son of man to toil;
All things unholy, marked by curse,
The ugly of the universe.
The rough, the wicked, and the wild
That keep the spirit undefiled.
With these I match my little wit
And earn the right to stand or sit.
Hope, look, create, or drink and die:
These shape the creature that is I.

—Theodore Roethke

Long live also the forward march of the common people in all the lands
towards their just and true inheritance, and towards the broader and
fuller age.

Long live transfinite mountains, the hollow earth, time machines, fractal
writing, aliens, dada, telepathy, flying saucers, warped space,
teleportation, artificial reality, robots, pod people, hylozoism, endless
shrinking, intelligent goo, antigravity, surrealism, software highs, two-
dimensional time, gnarly computation, the art of photo composition,
pleasure zappers, nanomachines, mind viruses, hyperspace, monsters
from the deep and, of course, always and forever, the attack of the giant
