Negative Manhattan
Hannes Kater

This is what happened:

Yesterday I sneaked into the ground zero hole.

Actually, I had no idea that this was possible, but I just passed the gate and walked down, and nobody really took notice. The first 3 levels down, everything is still quite messy, but the rest of the 119 below zero floors, are perfectly intact.

I took the speed elevator to go all the way to the bottom floor -121 to enjoy the view. I was a clear day and you could really see far away. all the way down, All of negative -Manhattan, the subways, the negative of the statue of Liberty, the roots of central park, really very nice.

I had a negative-coffee at the cafeteria and the white servant that worked at the counter, really thought I was telling here a joke when I said that all the positive had been blown away 2 years earlier.

  • Hey moon,

    Haven't sent one in yet, though I'm thinking about it. Perhaps this post on Walter Guthrie as an Archaeopteryx in akimbo.

  • what a beautiful futuristic idea you have created there!
    A new concept geography indeed!
    I want to believe that those words and visions, should they be sent, ideas could consulate the widow.
    It's beautiful and so ZEN
