6 - In the commandeering of words there evolved entities which were language robots

6: In the commandeering of words there evolved entities which were language robots.  SPAM.  Shooting off in every direction, "bang like a horse", "she squirted 2 feet".  These arrows of consciousness, eliciting image.  Terrorism of the mind?  Collective unconsciousness revealing itself.  Every 2nd or 3rd word searched for on the web is pornographic.  Sadism, death, pain, etc. is not far behind.  Language robots revealing Freud -- under the veiled fabric of civilized content is torment and lure of pleasure, power, imaginations; a perfect myriad of sub-thoughts pressed by human evolution - survive threats and procreate.  Playing on the huge theatre of mind, day in and day out.  The journey of consciousness.  We don't need television - it has  been playing every day in the human theatre since time immemorial.

Today there evolved strange creatures out of the shady landscape, borne in the dusty archives of librarimaginaries, winding through labyrinths; dragon's yellow-red eyes ask what is your desire.  Fingerknitting dendrites, a matrix of vessels folds down into earth, grasping for skin, find just smooth bark, a breeze, & toe-roots suckling the huge breast of earth
