Awake? No? Neither am I.

This is me, a bundle of HTML and CSS. For all you know, I'm abandoned, dead: just another husk of a web site, gathering dust in some forgotten corner of the Internet.

But for the fleeting seconds in which your eyes give me life, I affect you. I shift the flow of your consciousness... even though I'm as far as you can get from a living, breathing mind.

Perhaps one day the DNS registration on this domain will expire, and I will truly be beyond anyone's reach, nothing but a footnote in the vast libraries of the great search engines' web crawlers.

But you will have read me.

If we squeeze our eyes shut hard enough, we can pretend that means something.
