I like to think | (right now, please!) |of a cybernetic forest | filled with pines and electronics | where deer stroll peacefully... - Richard Brautigan

A poem called "All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace" by Richard Brautigan helped inspire this work:

"I like to think (and | the sooner the better!) | of a cybernetic meadow | where mammals and computers | live together in mutually | programming harmony |like pure water | touching clear sky.I like to think | (right now, please!) |of a cybernetic forest | filled with pines and electronics | where deer stroll peacefully | past computers | as if they were flowers | with spinning blossoms.I like to think | (it has to be!) | of a cybernetic ecology | where we are free of our labors | and joined back to nature, | returned to our mammal | brothers and sisters | and all watched over | by machines of loving grace."
