 Immanentize the Eschaton. Intensify the weight that the pressure puts on. Bring the ragged clamour into a resounding crescendo.... then let it go. Step past the smash of it's glass and begin the show. Explain the hidden mysteries in a series of concise soliloquies or one grand monologue of portent. Let them stand, agog at the truths we unvent. Yet, also loose the dog of shame upon them to nip at their negligent ways. As Jews in a synagogue will blame the men whipped and rent and flayed, Catholics en masse perform penance for old lies and the cries of the cultures they crushed in their power-mad craze. Like skies of vultures, they lunched as cowards on the cities they razed. The Islams at Mecca, for their intolerant, hate-filled creed, shall feel the hand of Allah in answer for those they made bleed. Our Earth is stained with the blood of Man. Ever since his birth, brought such pain and by his own hand. Now is the time to grow as new Men, to define what we know and use it to become holy again. To act as gods and fight our own fights, not hide under blankets and call for help in the night. We must stand and face our past... finally settle our debts at last, to trust our hand in the plans of fate and cast the dice once more... Aghast, how our advice was so poor, how our vast prices have soared, that golden idol from the past that we have continually adored, at last we are beholden and bridled with the vices we steadily bore. See how readily our monkey is scorned, and left forlorn. We must now win free of affliction and our truancy, of our sick addiction to this currency so we can receive the benediction that will allow us to see our own interdiction upon liberty and how our restrictions of that which should be free has stunted our humanity... as we have grunted in our excess mess of vanity...  our pride blunted by our profanity... we should be affronted by our inanity and obnoxious delusion... We could become undauntless in a revolution of conscious evolution....
