Chapter 4a. Psychic Actualisations
A while back, when Ingrid was the subject of a search for a
science-fiction novelist to collaborate on a strange theme, the
plot took an unexpected turn. This plot twist examines what
happened when benign technologies
In the 21st century, we find Television is bifurcating. It wasn't
expected to bifurcate. An analogy is
taken from the first Matrix movie in which we saw the old pulse dial
rotary phone become a hacker-folklore backdoor into the touch-tone
world. TV is another
much more modern technology than the Matrix phone.

emptied cathode ray tubes being confounded by the rhythmic oscillations
of high speed computer driven
meta-graphics. One is to the rotary dialer backdoor to the Matrix as
the other is to
the touch-tone dialer of computer controlled reality.
There's lots of boring math to wade through before your reality is snap
frozen; transformed by inverse geometry via a singularity into other
dimensions where our holographic universe is about one nanometer
is a convoluted reality where distance is curled onto self-similar
vibrational threads, but when you can

At the beginning of the century, on one path that we see computer
controlled reality moving to
harmless liquid crystal flat screens and the TV tube VDU/CRT is
into the history of human junk. After 20 years of research, the other
path was suddenly discovered leading towards the unchartered realm of
clairvoyance, with an old vacuum filled Visual Display Unit sourcing a
new voodoo and backdoor into other realities.
One Ingrid installation of mine turned
out to be more highly tuned than a late 20th century Avid, even
leveling superlatives. Hey that's, "A Ten Thousand Picassos

1999, when I predicted on it how to observe Ingrid producing
technical effects on a local quantum universe when run on a CRT, which
was different than when run on an LCD screen.
Believe me when I say, I discovered
the hard way, that the
effects are not patentable, they are hard
to believe, are random entanglements, hard to duplicate, but probably
testable. They are Psychic Actualisations.
I was too late. Ingrid had already siamese-twinned us to another
reality, stitched together by the two seconds of
