Unlikely vibrations

The publication’s cover and interior layout must be ready by the end of the month. I hope the editor’s instructions are clear enough to design the cover image for the text compilation.

I look forward to hear from you.

Perhaps the sum of all images allows for the possibilities to represent something. Nevertheless, it is most likely that when printed in the specified colours from the technical guide you sent the cover won’t allow the reader to see the book in the shelve.

When stretching the image out and attempting to preserve the solids that projects the darkest shades all colours fade away. I have been thinking about its similarity with transparency, but I believe the phenomenon is preposterous. Transparency in a material allows to see through it, but this transparency you insist on is crude and useless. I find devoid of any sense to multiply the vacuum’s presence, which I believe is unnecessary.

To best explain what I have been attempting to make you understand I have chosen a fragment from page 402 (903 in the extended edition):

“In Man in the High Castle I am not really missing the reason why, neither how of mister Tagomi swallowed our universe; simply, he got worse in a park and attentively dug out a hand crafted modern jewel with an abstract design.

He slept profoundly his attention and when he cut again the eyes he was in another universe. If I do not hear any explanation on this event it is because I hide no solution and want to avoid any writer, reader or critic to find one.”

I hope you understand, it is unlikely the vibrations achieve what, in principle, you and the writer expect. For such purposes I suggest a thorough revision of all issues addressed in the text. I insist in a reverse methodology; the removal of all verbs and its replacements by words not implying any sort of temporal form. In such way reading could be done in any order and the problem of page numbering would be solved.

Finally, in the chapter “If you stand up for this bad world you should eat each other” a change in repetitive deformations could be considered. Then, when looking at the images inside the publication our legs will be able to oscillate at a lower magnitude and balance will concentrate on the reader’s hand holding the publication.
