hypothetical representation of a language


The Planets that Never Were.

"There are wars and defeats and victories of the human race that are not military and that are not recorded in the annals of history." --John Williams, Stoner (1965)

Louisiana Loses Its Boot.

"The wind was pursuing its career with extravagance, now it had one. The snow was driven to places which only this paranoid force could care to oppress so; though, to be striding forth in it was to assume the delusions of the storm itself, becoming the object of its hostility and thus abruptly render a validifying dimension to this manic phase of a reality which would, left to itself, blow itself out in senselessness. Therefore, to redeem these absurd extravaganzas, which is after all the way of a hero, requires a worthy goal; then the gratuitous violence threatens only that path, and as the wind rises, the more worthy the goal then, and the more heroic the journey." --The Recognitions

"It may be that every man is set upon the earth to find one new method of divination."

"Many think it is reviewing which needs to be reformed, but I believe the culprit is the species, which surrounds itself with lies, and calls the lies culture, the way squirrels build their nests of dead twigs and fallen leaves, then hide inside." --William Gass
