"A Brain is constructed in the Sahara Desert - presently It grows larger than the Desert-out of pure mechanism, by the whole of the human race, It controls the whole activities and does all the thinking of the world. Ultimately a star collides with the sun while man is still tied within the limits of the solar system. The Brain describes the approaching process, Its helplessness in comparison with Its former omnipotent power over the world. It deplores mankind's delay in not co-operating earlier, which makes it impossible now to escape the catastrophe. It has visions, premonitions of what might have been." -dj flap.
