Can the titans of tech engineer an escape from government oversight? Initiatives like Seasteading and talk of Silicon Valley's "ultimate exit" are part of a growing tech-secessionist movement in which a variety of actors from venture capitalists and companies like Google to cloud-based communities of individuals are imagining city-state-like sites escaping state jurisdiction.

As Burroughs hunted through the library's unparalleled collection of rare occult works, he made a discovery that involved him in a radical, apparently unintelligible disorder of time and identity. The trigger was his encounter with a text that he was yet to compose: ' [A]n old picture book with gilt edged lithographs, onion paper over each picture, The Ghost Lemurs of Madagascar in gold script' (Burroughs 1987:30). He could not then have known that Captain Mission had taken the very same volume as his guide three cen- turies previously (already describing it as 'old').
Flipping through the pages, Burroughs entered a momentary cata-
tonic trance state. He emerged disoriented, and scarcely able to
stand. Despite his confusion, he was more than willing to describe, 8
with a strange sardonic detachment, the anomalous episode. Twenty-nine years would pass before Kaye understood what had occurred.
Burroughs told Kaye that, during the trance, it felt as though silent communication with a ghostly non-human companion had flashed him forward to his life as an old man, several decades in the future. Oppressed by 'a crushing sensation of implacable destiny, as if fragments of a frozen time dimension were cascading into aware- ness', he 'remembered' writing Tile Gllost Lemurs of Madagascar- 'although it wasn't writing exactly', and his writing implements
were archaic, belonging to someone else entirely, in another place and time.
Even after his recovery the sense of oppression persisted, like a 'new dimension of gravity'. The vision had granted him 'horrific insight into the jail-house mind of the One God'. He was convinced the knowledge was 'dangerous' and that 'powerful forces were con- spiring against him', that the 'invisible brothers are invading pres- ent time' (now in TE 209). The episode sharpened his already vivid impression that the human animal is cruelly caged in time by an alien power. RecaJling it later, he would write: 'Time is a human affliction; not a human invention but a prison'
