The Strange Story of Irina

by Ben Goertzel

Warning: Contents may be offensive to some

Irina swerves into the vortex.
Observe her sensuous eyes.

Irina emerges from the white hole
on the other side of the vortex.
But she is no longer in human form.
She is a semantic virus,
an exploding pattern,
a transcendental digital concubine...

Even your brain is not immune
from her insane explosions.

After a time,
her shifting form
comes to exceed human comprehension.

What once was Irina
has now entered
a different kind of universe.
