Chap 6: Katie Quits School

Dark matter is no more than an idea
Describing a physical thing.
So, where does the idea live?
Not within the physical universe,
It floats freely through the clouds of thought
Held by gravity,
And thus dwells within the fuzzy boundary that surrounds the cosmos.
– Mad Erik

Chap 5: Get Out Of My Head

Over there, Hacker Boy, the new Zeus, has gathered his stellar marbles and we are in his bag,
But what are the rules of his game?
His algorithms replace Sagittarius and Aries with the Gamemaster and Tron.
Southern stars tumble down into SearchTrees,
While Firewalls arise from the blazes in the East.

-Mad Erik

Chap 4: The Clear Light of Day

Why look for monsters in the patterns of the stars?
Surely they live among those stars themselves!
Lizardmen look to our light,
Birdmen fly in our direction,
Fishmen swim those stellar seas,
But which denizens of those deeps are more monstrous than we?
– Mad Erik
