    I understand that in order to continue the development of
    this publication, it is necessary to proceed in two separate
    directions simultaneously.  My intention is to create the
    WWW and e-mail versions of Glossolalia as two distinctly
    different publishing projects shaped by the advantages and
    limitations of their respective mediums.

    Still, this publication remains a journal for _experimental_
    arts, and not specifically _electronic_ arts.  Much of the
    material featured in this number of Glossolalia was
    produced, or at least transported, without a computer.  I
    want to continue this mixing of "old" and "new" media.
    Indeed, it is readily possible to replicate, mutate, and
    _merge_ the material images and texts within the electronic
    matrix, creating hybrid works.  (Should we call this kind of
    hybridisation as %ematerial art%?  Something that is moving
    between the worlds of "material" and electronic creation?

    I do not think cyberspace as totally independent, autonomous
    sphere that is isolated from, and is in contrast with, the
    "material" print culture.  Cyberspace is not the antithesis
    of %Galaxia Gutenberg%, it is just bluntly a "different part
    of its body", a part that belongs to this body, the body of

    One must think cyberspace as a semi-material state between
    the dream and the real: a hallucination in which one is
    capable of moving in two worlds with a considerable depth.

    "Electronic art", the banal term. We are not developing
    computer-aided design for the "real world", but a cyberspace
    emanation of Art, Science ... Magick.

    You don't need to search for the esoteric in cyberspace.
    There is nothing to search for.  Cyberspace %itself% is
    totally magical.  The %message% might not appear as magical,
    but the very %medium% is transcendental.  Understanding the
    electronic world is the alchemical Great Work: understanding
    the Magic of letters and images, the Magic of bytes and
    pixels.  Astral plane in TrueColor.

    Let us dream the lucid language.

    The shell cracked
