There is a countless number of ladders across a desert surrounded by infinite circles of singing-naked dancers. Nearby, there are cliche-islands with one palm tree, one stranded bearded tatter-clothed man.

Open space is not the romance of the post-modern cornucopia; everything is NOT available for our use.
