"In the Absence Of The Sacred" as written by and Blythe/morton/adler/campbell/adler....
Violence a natural reaction in a society whose advances are limited to its new technology;
different only in the current mode of destructive intent.
Date has replaced real life in this world, no hope for the stop of "progress."
Inevitable bio-link implant will replace the feel of human touch.
All memory surrogates downloaded bought & sold, no true sense
of self. Impending sensory death looming near.
A number, this is what you've become. Life digitized itemized commodified.
Ha, ha, ha, this is what you work for...

    General CommentIt's how modern culture's technology destroys how we are human. Ever read "The Abolition of Man?" It says how in our "conquest of nature," we only destroy ourselves.

    General Comment"In the Absense of the Sacred" - life without God. Without God, nothing makes sense. It's all just technology, evolution, violence, time, and material items that don't matter. All of this shit won't matter when we're dead. By following God, we have hope.
