Past: Richard Rezac

"... we are more than acclimated to objects and commodities adapted to us, so much so that any object blurrying its provided function produces an uncanny effect. We say they look otherworldly, alien, simply because we don't know what good they are to us..."

"...contaminating themselves in faint veils of cultural signifiers. These look purposed. Look like other things vaguely. As their power. "the elusive mechanisms of interpretation," They appear designed but without a purpose we can ascertain."
"The flux capacitor must only look like the expectations a public has for such an object." This, not time travel, was its power.
