HYPATIA!

And her library in Alexandria, a mythical woman raised by her father who introduced her to mathematics and philosophy. Passed to posterity from the violence suffered for having made herself guardian of the temple of her library, priestess of knowledge in this far time when the thing was not well considered for a woman. Burned, butchered, called a witch. She claimed to remain ... a virgin, for the right to non-seigneur.
Burned… COMBUSTION...
Dismembered… CUT… EXPLODE...
 
 
This library...
Accumulated to diffract, close to the loss of identity generated by the number. Wire tightrope, clinging to her(their) shadow, to keep this thread tight: Critical Mass that he recomposes.
