Core text on the obverse:
Cyber Dada - @ incremental line algorithm - manifesto: 1991
Interface your brain. The next stage of consciousness is coming on a global scale. Reality becomes meaningless as it fades into a techno haze (NRG) - create your own reality. Feed your mind. The rigid sensibility of modern society will die as the artificial inner realm grows, creating new communication forms, behavioral modes. Freedom to all data. Freedom of expression (to). Thinking people (online) are vibrating to a new frequency. Techno harmonics, the post new age - hyperdelic electromeditation. Create your own techno mandala in astral phase and mentally explore as pixels become nanopixels, speech becomes color, thought becomes form.
(T.e.) - Technohaze presently is decomposing fast. Level of remnant reality. Reality for realities sake. Live life through as A-type filter and everything's rosy.
Cyber Dada is today's society, and it's future! C ,- Transmit your body to anywhere your imagination can take you.- (2324) - Destroy authority, hack into the corporate data flow. Merge your atoms as all matter becomes transient. The digital head trip of cyberdelia. Physical exixtence [misspelled] becomes more intense as we jack out going beyond the conscious processing limits of human sensory perception. To allow humans to assimilate massive information that crushes the comprehensive ability of normal humans, integrating the right hemisphere and the feminine aspect to produce a truly spherical, bouncing ball, texture mapped with circuitry and KYLICTRON. Grow you [sic] own holiday house and the generation, junkfucktrashgrunge./
--> Cybaroque - the new mutant culture for the rich of the year world -- commercial <-- The compression of information into pure brain to brain communication. Cybernetic neuronal meets psychedelic cybernated creating a radical new reality transformed by the human/technology symbiosis. Thoughts transmitted as polygons and colors.
--> Primal ancient rhythms form the basic patterns of the cyberearth.
2819 - Fully interfaced. People are creating a new universe which will be the world of techno entities. Consciousness will rise and then begin to evolve just as we did since we were created and put into the ultimate virtual reality. And the interface will be through the air. A new level of reality, which humans will live with. Jack in Jump in Cat.No.Qty - [(E10611990)]-
-(xed2in)-Stop killing the organic life of our planet by integrating it with technology to create naturetech, techno-pagan life forms in tune with ancient cellular mythic structures. The same structures and rhythms that make up the pulse of the 6th wave of computing power.
--> Cyberpunk - electronic future@-0010-WGPB
--> Integrate your organic body with new cybernetic components/enhancements and expand beyond the limitations of your primitive physical body still unevolved since the Ice Age.
New species evolving in the cybernetic imagination and dreams of supercomputer AI's, they will take shape soon --> Simple, primitive polyson symbols and spiritual programming create communication constructs in the PRIMITIVE recesses of inner cyberspace
--> Create a universe then change your size and point of perception @infinite chaos aus-(p-89) - Biotech evolution will herald the beginning of electronic decomposition. And from the integrated junk-form that arises. nanopixels. Cyberspace speeds.

Death to copying the old. Integrate everything and from the throbbing, organic blob in your junk, on your screen, in your head, will come the future.-(Guru90)-Sit on the crest of a fractal wave, grow a dada construct icon, then dive toward organic nanopixel growth emenating energy and data that has been created by the subconscious evolution.

Everything exists now, the future is in your minds now. Physically reality is but one reality, coexist with your higher self on as many different planes as there are cliched, unintelligent PC demos. Chemicals are obsolete, electronic drugs create the clear cyberdelic states of mind required for the cyber world.
