There is a student living on the SIXTH floor of the lieberry because the computer
will not let him use it and he can never find a seat even if the place is still half
empty. He starts near the doorway in the lower deck of the student only area of
the information commons (yes it's still open to the public but no one ever sits
there) then he walks up threw the main part where all the students sit and copy
parts of pictures with some text all meant to be some grand and glorious cosmic
joke for they seem to be working for the printers ink for the printer just to work just
to go on printing one more grand and glorious joke. He skips the second floor
where there is sabios and goes up to the eterminals then he stays a while and
droll he is thinking he may play a game an actual computor game but no no one
gets up no one leaves the area he lurches up the stairs now on a dead run
moving quickly past the remains of the few sabio left that work for searching
books no internet throwing up on the outdoor rug as he nears the sixth floor stop.
He lost his mind in 1963 using LDS drugs and playing with his own autonomy he
leaves this world in agony as he sits upon the roof of the Hayden lieberry he
looks down at the canopy covering the awning of the entrance and he
contemplates a jump but he is way too chicken now for lunch he eats his heart.
