“T[..] Mathematics Show” / “T[..] Seven Deadly Sins”

T[..] marketing de-

part-

ment

thought it a great wizard wheeze to magickly

invent a TV program-

me of people you’d watch so

closely through t[..]ir maths and numbers

that visual observance and direct

inspect-

ion would no longer scientifically be

ne-

ed-

[to]

ed

nor ne-

ce-

ceasing to know what t[..]y

got up to, thought

or went and

did.

 

Just think of all t[..] piss-

abilities: follow anyone wherever t[..]y

went by just crunching t[..]ir numb-

erings and stats and equations, and al-

gor-

ithms

(much as t[..]y must have done for

presidential candi-

date beforetimes),

and t[..]n with all that data and 3D

ingenuity go a-

head and reconstruct a replicating

formality of home and work,

and walks in t[..] park

with wife and lover –

even at t[..] same time (but not in

real time you understand: this

would be combining t[..] cleverness of

awfully huge data with t[..] biggest,

grandest, most curious destruction of

privacy you’d ever gone and

se-

en in your life).

(If – in your life – you were still capable of

that lOOOOking you’d clearly re-

quire to en-

quire an inquiry in time for time not to

run out outside and p-

lay the day away …)

 

In t[..] end, t[..] show mentioned never got

made: too many reasons not to; too many

reasons to say: but mainly just one really significant

ot[..]r:

it was far more fun to make art films and

stuff

on

imagine-

airy

gall-

eeries of seven deadly sins than truth any reality of ordinary

Finns!
