hi fediverse, you could read this essay I wrote in which I try to explain why automatic writing (e.g. Breton, Fox Sisters) and computer-generated writing often resemble one another in form and use—despite the (apparent) differences in how they're authored (with particular reference to Jenna Sutela's work) https://www.serpentinegalleries.org/art-and-ideas/the-umbra-of-an-imago-writing-under-control-of-machine-learning/

I was in Lebanon meeting with the new minister of finance
he wasn't from the ruling class, I think he was from the revolution or at least pro-revolution
he was describing his economic recovery plan
it was entirely dependent on foreign aid
this disappointed me, so I asked "why do we need to become further indebted to foreign nations?"
he took off his glasses, rubbed his eyes, tired
and told me "we do not own the land which we govern"
