Shadow figures occupy the margin of foresight and may in fact be closer than they appear. UFOs, airships, orbs, angels and other ominous aerial phenomena have flanked the borderlines of technoculture and the imagination for centuries, obscuring access to an over-burdened future as part of protocol in their line of guardianship.
Remediating themselves stylistically to stave off obsolescence, they struggle to remain buoyed between the recent past and immediate future, while incessantly messaging the mess-age with sage advice on eco-ethics and modes of reasonable maintenance. In most cases they are jettisoned back to the dubiously unforseeable future by visionary cranks, while behind the scenes their craft are apprehended, reverse engineered and hardened into commodity-forms. As evidenced, claim some, in the emergence of the transistor following the Roswell incident, economic value is generated on account of startling novelty as much as innovative impact.
Turn around is fairplay and abductions may well be explained in relation, ala the energy web schemes of Immortality, Inc, potentially. But furthermore it is worth noting that there is a healthy grey market that concerns the coming and goings of these otherworldly apparitions. Determined to mitigate the radical monopoly on catastrophic form that is captained by the storm of Progress, the assorted angels of history have formed uneasy alliances in the informal sector, remembering that an elastic defense is essential in an era of flexible accumulation.
Detrimental robots, holed up in the hollow of the Earth have experienced a boon in recycling of e-waste associated with negligent Titans and, in some cases, Atlantans. This has led to assorted disturbances on the surface, on the other hand. Elsewhere, redolent of a winking prank, millions of discarded copies of Atari’s “E.T.” game cartridge were buried outside of Roswell, NM.
Like Flying Dutchmen, the angels of history are going nowhere fast while doing their best to proffer pertinent portents of doom. Hidden in plain foresight, a progression of wreckage is blinded by future influence?
