With me this was the first image that came up. I saw the computer as, airy, involved in much but able to shut off al connection at once.
Cold, hovering above, proud, able to send out beasts and catch food.

I've been guided somewhat by William Blake's quote: "I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create". Just change 'system' for 'style'. - Bill

With all the shit that is spewed out, I immediately thought of Naked Lunch, a great movie BTW.
