Ferrum Wheel Number Five: pipe-bomb / picnic-basket
upon the point of detonation the pipe bomb being a wholly exothermic reaction a shock wave followed by a parade of calories heating objects to the point of dissolution. its signal to noise ratio dependent on how well you cover your head. picnic-basket an entirely endothermic reaction a display of digestables requiring organization - work - calories go into making your food they do not simply come out of it. you are Maxwell's Demon this time around if you choose to be. signal to noise Sorter. Make no longer, only Move. Detritan become a Velocitator. or you are a soldier with your helmet pulled low after the flash point. it is your choice.
it is time to recognize that these are the things we eat these are the things that kill us. c.f.
