The work in progress title for a scifi short story that Bakker has finished but has not yet got around to publishing.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Wonder if Bakker will succeed in getting this published or not...
The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?

I love the title, especially given the context of his other scifi work like neuropath and crash space

I find what I could stand to read of Neuropath and Crash Space extremely disturbing and unnerving. Don't like reading them. At all.

I think that's his point- we don't want to face our future, but here it is!
