In twenty years of publishing, I have never before written in the first person for any kind of public. That ends here, for a public that will pre-select.

As with any other substack, you will begin to receive updates in your inbox but, because The Bride Stripped is an interactive project unlike any other Being attempted on this platform, I hope to receive updates from you as well. 

Inversely to CovidianÆsthetics, with its focus on emergence, the main theme of The Bride Stripped will be immanent. Where  must be visionary, TBS ought to be original. 

I’ve said it already: we are building a scenius. So even as we densify its circuitry and grow its reach, the time has come to fasten and engorge the cybernetic loops that make up its intelligence.

Be welcome to The Thing.
