Writing about writing

The following texts have been cheated. They have been cheated of their innocence through the cold harshness that is a computer. It has been conveyed from a wireless black keyboard to a hard drive that deciphers the code by one or two bytes per character. This then is transported to a computer monitor flat screen, a vast waste of money, to show visual conformation. All of this happens almost instantly and close to the speed of light. The light from the computer screen travels into my eyes in an uncountable sequence of streaming light waves. From there it travels into my occipital lobe to be decoded and processed after it is routed from other parts of the brain. This lobe contains no actual perceptual capability at all. Can anything actually be known under these circumstances? Our entire lives have been constrained by this. Our existence is interpreted not by the interpreter, but by a second hand source.
