More in the Way of Items

Read yesterday:

  • Pickover, Clifford A. Computers and the Imagination: Visual Adventures beyond the Edge. (St. Martin’s: 1991). Hyperkinetic. Early sections on computer-generated mazes of interest, and the clear hand of A Perfect Vacuum and Imaginary Magnitude was visible later.

  • Sedgwick, Mark. Against the Modern World: Traditionalism and the Secret Intellectual History of the Twentieth Century. (Oxford: 2004). Prologue reads in some ways like it could have come from the eXile. Would have liked more exposition of Guenon’s, Evola’s, and Schuon’s ideas as such.
