Scathing Letters

To: Thomas | From: Peternal

well at least it shows a canny, cunning, and apt reference to

Irreversible and that noted murder therein by fire extinguisher to a

mans head in club rectum , and further shows the shared mind of

michael burress with that of director gaspar noe and all those

consumed by bridled anger at their state of existence, perhaps an anger

not grown from inner faults at all, but by the outer state of the

world , this anger tempered by the unwillingness of mankind to accept

this tendency to harber violence, when the anger itself is really an

emotion generated by hormone levels manufactured in the more primitive

areas of the brain, those assemblages of neurons , shaped by the ascent

of earlier life forms, animals , beasts , hunting carnivores creatures

as men, and a simple autocatalytic feedback loop that generates such

emergent properties as life being behind it all.
