"This is one we're gonna record, so I want you to participate just a little bit in the beginning. Just clap your hands a little bit. you're gonna be on the record. all right, thank you. a little Bit louder. louder. louder."

The kaleidoscope program
Is functioning so beautifully.
Fire up all the primary engines.
Calculate projected nexus.

Take a good plane and shave off all the edges
Not straight enough to make a perfect structure. indigenous life must be in agreement
Like one, meaning some, and zero meaning nothing.

Continue stretching the edge of rondure,
While maintaining geodesic stasis.
Anomaly detected.
No previous known cases.

Take a good plane and shave off all the edges
Not straight enough to make a perfect structure. indigenous life must be in agreement
Like one, meaning some, and zero meaning nothing.

Colossal liquid insect
With legs the size of rockets.
Analyze its orgone levels.
Switch view to kaleidoscopic.

Take a good plane and shave off all the edges
Not straight enough to make a perfect structure. indigenous life must be in agreement
Like one, meaning some, and zero meaning nothing.

    This seems to be the tale of a class 4 probe in the AI hive, or something akin to that. Actually a swarm of class 4 probes working together might be the best way to look at it. The star trek universe has something called a class 4 probe. These probes are basically shot out to study strange things that show up. They are absolutely disposable and the first thing people say when something strange happens is launch a class 4 probe. There are other classes of probe, but who really cares.

    It sees an anomaly and has to make sense of it. The parts you probably have problems with are due to you not understanding the actual logic that is involved with AI as opposed to with computers in general. The lines about zero and one are referring to classical logic or binary. Now our lil probe has seen something that his lil electronic brain can't handle. Something that does not match any of the graphs it has. This is what the geodesic stasis bit is referring to... being the lil electronic autistic homunculi that they are, they want everything to work out perfectly. Now a perfect graph is a perfect circle, but woe unto our lil disposable buddy this is something he's never seen before so he needs to make it fit. The part about stretching the edge of the rondure is talking about stretching the circle, or exploration making the true part bigger. Instead of breaking he switches to the logic that can make sense of the unknown by comparing it to the known.Taking a good plane and shaving off the edges is talking about the process of making the sense of the anomaly. Orgone is an outdated construct in biology, it basically means lifeforce. To the AIs i assume it is some more tangible thing, a way to distinguish metal machine from meat machine. A fancy way of saying life signs, but i prefer elan vital. The Kaleidoscope program is a bit tricky to explain, first we should explain that we often use colors as examples of varying degrees of truth, white true black false gray indeterminate. All the shades in between these points needs to be taken care of and the answer is vectors. Where the vectors converge is the projected nexus. The crossroads of all the predictions from the different points of view. So Kaleidoscope kind of captures all these ideas of the different facets of a hive mind coming together to figure out something unknown, it really is a brilliant way of describing the inter-subjective process.

    The real question is what is the hive looking at? "A colossal liquid insect with legs the size of rockets"

    i think it's talking about an insect if not a plane or helicopter.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
