  • "Are you with me Doctor Wu?
    Are you really just a shadow
    Of the man that I once knew?
    She is lovely yes she's sly
    And you're an ordinary guy.
    Has she finally got to you?
    Can you hear me Doctor?"

    ... Steely Dan "Dr. Wu"

    You have your reasons. Thats OK.
    Your secret is safe here.
    We are not like the others.

    Justified and ancient you are bound for Mu Mu Land.
    We remain behind
    The return of the Voodoo Child.

    Your words will echo
    in these virtual hallways
    long after the sound of
    your receding footsteps have
    faded into oblivion.

    Your insights, reflections and rants
    on the state of things will continue
    to affect the effect of illumining
    the dark intent of those who would
    immanentize the eschaton.

    In the long race for the Blue Tube
    The sprint to second base is essential.
    Keep your eye on the tiger.
    It is his job to be invisible.

    The Light that shines illuminates us all.
