historical catalouges indicate

the vastness of this apparatus.
The apparent impossibility of knowing this led a small expedition
of “native chiefs”
into the heart of the machine.

It was implied that
there was a peaceful idyllic condition
inside, unspoilt by the complicated questions of civilised life.

But suddenly we woke up to the fact
that while every other part of the habitable globe was attached to the machine our charter was in the balance.

This was a consequence of human beings now being able to choose freely
between wanting to accept
a transcendent
power or not.

However
different options were available.
