Data fetish: quivering, in the palm of your hand
Excerpt from Annotations on “The Atrocity Exhibition” by J.G. Ballard
"The time-music of the quasars. A huge volume of radio signals reaches this planet from space, crossing gigantic distances from the far side of the universe. It’s hard to accept that these messages are meaningless, as they presumably are, no more than the outward sign of nuclear processes within the stars. Yet the hope remains that one day we will decode them, and find, not some intergalactic fax service, but a spontaneously generated choral music, a naive electromagnetic architecture, the primitive syntax of a philosophical system, as meaningless but as reassuring as the pattern of waves on a beach."
Truth, that cosmic white noise, infinite and benign. A million, billion, trillion years after your body is atomic dust, take comfort in its preservation.
