        “In _Finnegans Wake_ by internal linkJames Joyce, such a space is called the ‘merry internal linkgo raum,’ from the German word ‘raum’, for ‘space.’  The room is actually going around, and in that space one feels like a child, though one has come out somewhere in eternity.”

        “We need to cultivate a sense of mystery.  The mystery is not only in the Other; it is in us.  This reverberates again with the idea that we become what we behold.  The nature of history is suddenly transforming in the postinternal linkquantum physics, postmodern phase;  this was not expected.  The nineteenth century, the early twentieth century – they didn’t realize this was what they were pointed into.  Although some few people, the ‘Pataphysicians, the internal linksurrealists, saw what was coming.  But now here we are.”

        “This is a kind of Islamic paradise in which one is free to experience all the pleasures of the flesh provided one realizes that one is a projection of a internal linkholographic solid-state internal linkmatrix that is microminiaturized, superconducting, and nowhere to be found: it is part of the plenum. All technological history is about producing prototypes of this situation with greater and greater closure toward the ideal, so that airplanes, automobiles, space shuttles, space colonies, starships of the  nuts-and-bolts, speed-of-internal linklight type are, as Mircea Eliade said, “self-transforming images of flight that speak volumes about man’s aspiration to self-transcendence.”

        “Man is a very odd creature.  And to have arisen in a million years from the chipping of flint to launching of the space shuttle and the hurling of instruments out of the solar system, it seems preposterous to maintain that the forces and facts of nature as we know them could have allowed us to do what we are doing.  Instead, I take a very premodern view:  we are in league with the demiurge.  We are the children of a internal linkforce that we can barely internal linkimagine.” – _Archaic Revival_ p. 40

        I had always wondered about the possibility of hypnotism to create this effect. For example, your screen is split into three sections

        /what you hear
        |what you see

        All are text but your are hypnotised into interpreting them into actual visual images.  Afterwards, on exiting the internal linktrance, you remember the events that took place as if you actually lived them.  In a similar sense, it seems to me that a internal linkD&D game could be played on the same level.  If it were possible I would certainly find it very interesting and even seductive.
