Ellis Diem Tea

Initiate deconstruction sequence.
Reverse perceptual encoding – retrograde to zero state.
Sensory anchors uncoupled (alright boys, I think it’s kickin’ in)
I think it is (I don’t know if it is) !
A wall of screens as far as I can see in every direction,
flashing in a cacophonous, epileptic,
spectral display – Reality ?
They collapse into a viscous, rainbow waterfall, pouring into, and
around me.
I am enveloped between infinitesimal divisions of space.
Zero state achieved.
Beginning reformat sequence.
Deleting superfluous data.
I see a speck of white – lone star in otherwise empty cosmos.
The circle expands. As it grows, I realize I am hurtling towards and into it. All is white light burning. My body dissolves –
Abandoned notion of control. I am white light, burning.
Screams overlay and feedback to become a penetrating static hiss,
like the ocean in the ear of a great and terrible god.
The wave breaks into a pink, churning froth, littered with entrails –
a soup of flesh, which I slurp up and choke on.
Limbs stuck in my throat, I suffocate forever.
Skin flayed and disemboweled forever.
Dismembered and decapitated repeatedly, into infinity.
An endless cycle of reproduction and destruction flashes in trails inside opposed reflections until they cease to be.
Reformat sequence complete.
I went to great lengths to unlock this machine.
Update and reinstate perceptual encoding.
I can see what lies behind this palace of mirrors –
