The sun stands still, refuses its unavoidable diffusion, in our minds, to darkness.

It stands, while pressing on and illuminating, pushing our noon towards our midnight.

 

;our time has neither passed nor has arrived.

 

 

In return they shoot the clock, and refuse to be enlightened.

They defer the soul and body from being be sundered, and thought and sight of being cleared.

 

They make a darkened space. In it, you, as a visitor, cannot easily grasp a thing.

It is a traversed dimensionality that moves by ways of a perspective in inversion. It transgresses history as linearity and language as to be consumed.
