The New Post-literate: A Gallery of Asemic Writing
Wrote Mac Tonnies on Posthuman Blues, "One of the most compelling blogs to catch my attention recently is The New Post-literate, a repository of asemic writings sometimes reminscent of channeled texts and alleged extraterrestrial symbols."
"I contend that the asemic writings compiled by The New Post-literate... hail from the human subconscious. While making no immediate rational sense, perhaps they are indeed 'self-executing' in the sense that they appeal to hidden recesses of the collective psyche."
