Then he showed his scholar the great hall of dynamos, and explained how little he knew about electricity or force of any kind, even of his own special sun, which spouted heat in inconceivable volume, but which, as far as he knew, might spout less or more, at any time, for all the certainty he felt in it. To him, the dynamo itself was but an ingenious channel for conveying somewhere the heat latent in a few tons of poor coal hidden in a dirty engine-house carefully kept out of sight; but to Adams the dynamo became a symbol of infinity. As he grew accustomed to the great gallery of machines, he began to feel the forty-foot dynamos as a moral force, much as the early Christians felt the Cross.


i thought there was a danger
i read it in the paper
was something about a glacier
was something about erasure
i could have sworn i saw the whole thing inside
i could have sworn someone had something to hide

i called in as a stranger
just need the information
i don't mean to belabor
please excuse my aphasia
i don't recall what i was hoping to find
son of a bitch slipped my mind

so if there is a danger
and there's nothing in the paper
then it's the reverberator
