An abstract is antithetical to this work: there is no one sentence that states the purpose of this piece, this is not language substituting material. This is a collection of sentences which make a up a lie. This is a collection of stories which make up a truth. We tell stories and in telling them we tell ourselves. We are a collection of ideas, the human experience is a constant cyclically cannibalistic archival process. In a vast and ever- expanding regime of knowledge, we create and re-create the narrative of ourselves over again in every hour of every day. In the process of reading I ask that the reader take in to account their own histories, their own libraries, and their own multitudes of self.
