‘History is a race between education and catastrophe.’ - H.G.Wells
Since the tyranny of the age of Newton, and the barbarism of the
terrible ‘redundancy’, we have seen nothing but the fragile pinnacle
of a previous civilisation pitched into the undergrowth. We dumbly
ignored the old machines and ideas that were decaying at our feet.
Now, however, it is time for the ‘Great Reclamation’. A new power will
be forged for both man and technology, as we strike forward with
renewed purpose and demonstrate our mastery of all skills, both new
and old. Around us we collect the brutal technology, the abandoned
theories, the outdated strategies of the past, and we weld together a
raw vision of the present where debunked science, once outmoded ideas
and redundant machines will join and stand together as one. The past
will now live side by side with the future, to understand all things
in the glorious intense present.
Long live The Reclamation!
