Take where you are as the site of an unknown culture, with you an explorer - remember it might be dangerous to you, an alien. What are the unexpected finds?

>Pretentious artworks from a lost world.(Only kidding) > -Ian
making claim to great merit or importance - How would you know they were doing that if they were from a lost world, perhaps you assigned their worth in the first place, so is your judgment pretentious then? (Don't know if I'm kidding or not, doesn't stop the words either way)

Mav

>That they have very perfect and pointed tongues. Sux
Were they honed by use? Did you find a purpose or perhaps a point without point? What happened to those without pointedness, was their difference added to the sum of richness or were they discarded?
Did you come to the point with them

>I see a once beautiful city scythed in two by an ugly mass of concrete and traffic-choked highways. Native beings, choking from the fumes, scurry across tangled steel footways in the sky. In a subterranean vault in the middle of a concrete traffic island, litter swirls around the feet of a drunken beggar. A proud Jacobean gable proclaims "General Soup Kitchen" to nobody in particular as the ceaseless traffic thunders by. Escape from his nightmare vision of progress is only possible by urine-soaked alleyways. All hope is lost in the world known as Central East Motorway. Ghosts of the Royal Arcade echo outside the old employment exchange. This is civilisation? >Colin Alexander (like these pieces so repeating them here - the next one seems to follow on)
