Obligatory "ignore this space" : https://sacoronavirus.co.za

I might get more than one reader curious if I suggest I have evidence that we're living in an experiment, which has been going on at least as long as we've been alive. The previous generation, we know, will deny all knowledge of it. If they are to be believed we might begin to think the world on which we live is an experiment itself. But now, except by making changes which are the hallmark of the plagiarist, my story cannot differ from the one by an English science fiction author who blamed the mice.

But the man who wrote the trilogy in four parts died of a heart-attack, and then there was a quick buck to be made. Clearly intended to sanitize the story of all satire, the makers of the film also clearly did not intend to look at the word trilogy, let alone consider the satire in a series called a trilogy which goes boldly on like an infant who's learnt how to bounce along the Real number line and sees integers as labels only there to stop our fun.

The fifth part of the trilogy, however, was written for me alone.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

And now I've been asked to stop bouncing. Babies might have to teach their mothers a thing or two. But then they might come to think that none of us should eat meat. And what can we do but say, 'that's a great idea, but have you thought about the bachelors?'
