The creatures, which our patient refers to as "the overseers", begin to teach him their technical ways. They create perfection, at the expense of emotion or feeling... As androids, they do not have hearts, and can only teach others how to express the passions they feel.. Anything they create themselves is void of these human qualities. Under their guidance, our subject begins to churn out his art, mixing his passion with their technique... a match made in heaven. He loves them.


And so it began.
I churned it out like a machine.
I drew them up like a printing press.

This music has no soul, nothing, it's robotic.
Mechanic. inorganic.
Organized, yet chaotic.

And even if these beings had feelings, free will and thought, beating hearts,
They wouldn't mind the reality of these observations --
They wouldn't have it any way else.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please direct them to the machines.

I am just a vessel for their creations. I just relay their messages.

So please, fill out this card and place it in the comments box
and they'll process it as soon as they can.

They contemplate each request.
Cherish their work,
Or lose them.

They will never die, only rust.
They may short out, but only briefly.
They will not stop.
They will not cease, only pause, persistence.

Powered by static.

Entropy, at your feet. Atrophy.
Alchemic galaxy.

And so it begins, they'll churn them out.
We'll churn them out.

If these machines began to breathe,
Then I'd accept the new regime.
Open your eyes
You love all they oversee.
