Technology as the beast
Apocalypse pt. 2
I wanted to create something of a streaming effect, a mechanical, digital tone of the language to mimic the voice of a machine. I want to make people think here, of how the computer and the cell phone could very well satisfy the image of the beast described by John in Revelations; living, or appearing to live, on the screen, and then going dead at the flick of a button or a switch. How else would John have been able to describe something like technology, in his time, having no experience with it? It certainly raises the dead, on demand; look at the old movies of dead stars you can stream. It brings down fire in the sight of men; all the explosions in the action movies. It is a substitute for reality, for emotions, connecting you into this machinery designed to manipulate you for financial gain. estoryPays one point and 2 member cents.
