The resin structures in your lungs are reinforced by shards of plastic you inhaled. They grow together, following a fractal pattern. You look out at the fossilized something in the distance - prehuman waste management gone wrong. The plastic is likely tracing you via i8i. A carcass of binaries. We’ll have a ceremonial burn in USD.
As stipulated in our contractual agreement with Instagram: the eternal plane of suspension, sparkling, elysian blood breathes through the lapping waves of water, removed from coursing veins, as it tumbles in a rhythmic exchange of skin cells, iridescent fabric, crystalline salt, and halophilic bacteria. The horizon disappears to eyes born before we hug the sun. All of consciousness’ riders are put to unending sleep. Sensory deprivation lit by supple reflected beams. Life interrupting the continuity of oblivion. We do not know who made it. It is older than God

A cicada is burrowed within the sun. ash falls as the Earth draws its first and only breath. mosaics of dried exoskeletons shelter a feathered hatchling. birds in the distance sing for the birth of Lilith.

ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN
i8i is syncing—the Holy Ash Interface awakens to offset the Apocalypse Index. FITNESSS unearths the Death Altar—actualizing the pinnacle of physical ascension. Angelic pulsations of primordial morse erase us from known history.

Translation is an archaeological practice that relies on the activation of latent artifacts of all technics. It is only through the looking glass, seer stone, oracle’s hood, 12MP 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, and pixel field window that both the perching, petrified raptor and its humming cousin can be oriented through the lithic lens of concentric absorption. The cloudy sediment of the philosopher slips through tectonic lips. The charcoal rises carefully from the saline water to a twisting, arching, and trembling sacrificial spine that offers up spirit to the most bleak reflection.
“The creator gods designed a foundation of language by which all spheres of spirit elements could be constructed: kingdoms of intelligence that could exist upon a complex foundation of order. The creator gods began these creations at a molecular level known in scientific terms as DNA, genetics, and chromosomes. When it comes to the design of the DNA, each part, section, function, and purpose has been named after the order of spirits, elements, angels, and archangels within the Celestial, Terrestrial, and Telestial Kingdoms… By the communication and calling forth of various spirits, angels, and archangels which are located at various positions in the DNA, one would cause certain sequences of codons to emerge. These sequences activate various genes that will bring forth nutritional value as well as knowledge in a variety of arts and sciences. The creator gods then took this stairway of DNA and wrapped it around language to form the first alphabet of physical life…” 
Earth, its tones, tongues, spinal cords, optic nerves... Each neuron - connected to an unimaginable web - pulses and fires hundreds of times each second, spreading reality like Greek fire over the wet membrane of consciousness. The reflective surface gives dimension to being that is then retraced through the technomic, socio-technic, and ideo-technic artifact classes of scrying screens and magic mirrors.
Revealing the fate of first users to interface with ÆOS software, DÆMON shares their record of the unforeseen powers and limitations of the new technology.
