Re.engineer Magazine - Summer 2021

IT IS TO HAVE A DREAM WITHOUT BEING CONSCIOUS YOU ARE DREAMING LEST THE DREAM BREAK....IT IS TO BE TRAPPED IN A TERRIBLE TOWER OF PURE SCIENCE....IT IS TO LIVE IN A MEAN, BARE PRISON CELL AND REGARD YOURSELF THE SOVEREIGN OF LIMITLESS SPACE....IT IS TO TURN FAILURE INTO SUCCESS , MICE INTO MEN, RAGS INTO RICHES, STONE INTO BUILDINGS, STEEL INTO BRIDGES, FOR EACH ENGINEER HAS A MAGICIAN IN HIS SOUL....IT IS TO MAKE THE GUNS ROAR, THE MACHINES HUM, THE NIGHT RESOUND WITH SUCH MEANINGFUL GLORY AS SPARKS FLY UP FROM HIDDEN PLANTS THAT NIGHTINGALES CEASE SONG IN REVERENCE TO LISTEN TO THE CALL OF GOLDEN FOUNTAIN FROM AFAR AND REVEL IN THE PROMISE OF MOONSWEPT SILVER STARS....IT IS TO GIVE DEEL SPRINGS OF WATER TO THIRSTY TRAVELERS, TO PROVIDE WARMTH AND SHELTER FOR THE HOMELESS, TO ADD ADVENTURE AND ALLAY THE TEDIUM OF LESSER MEN'S HOURS ....IT IS TO BE PERPETUATES BY THE DELICACY OF ILLUSION OF DISTANCE THAT TOO OFTEN TWILIGHT FORETELLS....IT IS TO BE THE CONQUEROR OF A COWARD, A KING AND A CAPTIVE, A SAVIOR AND A SLAVE...IT IS TO BE GOOD UNTO SEEMING GODLIKE WHILE CONTRASTING EVIL INCARNATE....IT IS TO SUFFER A THRONE ALONE IN YOUR TERRIBLE TEMPLE OF SCIENCE WHILE COMPANIONS ROAM THE CITY STREETS AND MAKE CAREFREE CARNIVAL....IT IS LOVING AND WINNING ONLY TO LOSE AND LOVE AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOR ENGINEERING IS A FANCIFUL GODDESS CLAD IN FICKLE FANTASY , FORM-FITTING FORTUNE, AND FLAMING FOOL'S GOLD WHO RECOGNIZES NEITHER DISASTER NOR DESPAIR. TO BE AN ENGINEER....
