an engineering rush :: recreated arts

if we ever build these
mighty civilisation simulating computers
we'll recreate an ancient greece
see the poetry of Σαπφω* being written
and other lost works
from other great times

bardic celtic britain
the whole pre-writing world
back to the start of language
excitement discovery
rushing like fumes from a racing car

we'll create new paradigms of history
what would homer have sung if troy had won
what would shakespeare have played if turkey took europe
what would you be reading if…

*Psappha or Sappho, subject to my ignorant attempt at ancient Greek

image: poem



new scientist
a song so dire
the argument
another bitch
recreated arts
the game
oh gods
rushed off
