Status: O PIPE DREAM (1 of 3) ******************* The world had become hazy; indistinct. Representational forms spontaneously wavered into ambiguity. The scientific community had no answers. In desperation, the President turned to Dournier, the noted art historian. Dournier brought a Magritte into the Oval Office and gestured with a pointer. "The caption, translated, reads 'This Is Not A Pipe'. Magritte's idea: you don't see a pipe, but an image *resembling* a pipe, seen from your perspective." His mouth drew into a grim line. Fumbling in his pockets, he withdrew a long-stemmed brier. "The problem, Mr. President, is that in a few days this won't be a pipe either." -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg.
