Fountain - a hybrid payload Adopted from Tyler, who made versions a1-a8 (a8 was never released). Television has a scale. It has other properties, but what television has to a dominant degree is a certain scale and the power to enforce it. No one has been able to describe the scale as it is experienced. We know some of its properties, though. Television does not vary. The trivial is raised up to power in it. The powerful is lowered toward the trivial. The power behind it resembles the power of no-action, the powerful passive. It is bewitching. It interferes with growth, conflict, and destruction, and these forces are different in its presence. "Entertainment" is an unsatisfactory word for what it encloses or projects or makes possible. No good has come of it.
