The camera pans down to reveal a large planet and its two moons. Suddenly, a tiny Rebel ship flies overhead, pursued, a few moments later, by an Imperial Star Destroyer—an impossibly large ship that nearly fills the frame as it goes on and on seemingly forever.

Thanx to Stalin, Anon. Nietzsche, Hank Purcell Jr. Such a spectacle ought to offend nearly everyone. Paste up in public places a xerox flyer, photo of a beautiful twelve-year-old boy, naked and masturbating, clearly titled: Follow the same general procedure as outlined in Section 5 below, but utilize an aesthetic of good fortune, bliss or love, as appropriate.
A technique adapted from Malaysian sorcerers: Full details obtainable from the A. Were the Kallikaks onto something good? The suchness of things when unchained from the Law, each molecule an orchid, each atom a pearl to the attentive consciousness--this is our cult.

Provided we can escape from the museums we carry around inside us, provided we can stop selling ourselves tickets to the galleries in our own skulls, we can begin to contemplate an art which re-creates the goal of the sorcerer: We might now contemplate aesthetic actions which possess some of the resonance of terrorism or "cruelty," as Artaud put it aimed at the destruction of abstractions rather than people, at liberation rather than power, pleasure rather than profit, joy rather than fear.
