Lights Up

Information spreads ridiculously well. No, watch it. It's all over every paper all around you. It's humming all around your telephone and all around your keys. It's waiting behind the dark screen of the television. It's in the air, invisible, audible, or flying.

It's been duplicated again and again. What's going to become of all that paper? Thrown away? It'll grow into more paper! Recycled? It'll get there faster. Where are all the radio signals going? Every word anyone says, it goes out forever, weaker and weaker. What information created who you are? What was written on your page before it became yours? Does it make a difference? Don't you wonder?

It flows out of nothing. How do we know where you are when we've got your phone and it would electrocute you right now, anyway? No, really, how do we? Why do new things keep coming to light when we're all sitting in the dark?

It's mostly rubbish and it's mostly mystery. There's people behind every stupid infomercial! Can you hardly believe that? There's something that will always make me laugh. So many people working together, throwing energy all over the place. Look at all we have to show for it.
