    How fabulous it would be to achieve that kind of density in an environmentaly sustatainable way. I bet we can do it.

    I’ll take that bet, knowing there’s no way on earth; on this one, or even on several others.

    You have BEEN to Manhattan, yes? It’s a Piranesi hemmorhage of waste and inutility. It’s a global potlatch of fractal cementitude. Density? It’s a livin’, breathin’, DEATH STAR TRENCH! It’s REAL, it’s phenomenological; probably edging currently towards ‘eschatalogical’.

    It would indeed be fabulous were it even remotely ‘environmentally sustainable’, but it would also be similarly fabulous if it were a rotating sphere of water, filled with psychic Yoga dolphins who all ate scrap laptop batteries and shat Schubert sonatas.

    PS I meant of course to type ‘eschatological’, not ‘eschatalogical’; although perhaps that typographic snafu was some Derridaean slip or Joycean composite-riff, on my part?

    Anyway. For the record:
