These sub-worlds and sub-plots are endless. But I’ve got a map. It isn’t drawn using a compass, something that always points to the same place. Quite the contrary: it’s guiding force is derangement.
Ecstasy and excess are aspects of the same thing. And ecstasy/excess is itself twisted round fantasy/disguise, glamour/lawlessness, revelation/fracture. Everything is so densely packed that you can go from any point in to any other in the time it takes to click your fingers.
Ecstasy has four spin-offs –
- bop until you drop
– each of which has strong overlapping orbits, and across all the dimensions. So all four (passion, sex, etc.) roll over into: excess, fantasy, disguise, glamour, lawlessness, revelation, fracture, and all their spin-offs (from addiction to calling down the gods), with no trouble at all.
This is an entire universe, one that is lit up by the hit just as a landscape is lit up by lightning at night.
