I watch the bus go by with Indis O 'Say's "The Facetaker' on it from my window and wonder ..wonder if it was made for those poisoned with the Merge ..an inside joke..I watch from the window because I can't go outside like this ..it always stops ..my face always returns to it's normal size and proportions..
but until than I wait..
wait for the numbness to stop
wait to look like myself again
Vanessa doesn't say anything .She doesn't have to her eyes say enough
She used to tell me "the looks thing ' was subtle.
she doesn't say that anymore
she wants me to take down all I said about Neuronautics
she wants things to go back to how they were
my face -most of all
the problems began
in spite of the invisibility
it began to show.
they realized that besides the transmissions targeting the various
synapses in the brain
the pulsations and Mazar waves
would also strike the cranial nerves
some of the
more aggressive mandlers decided
it would be fun to not only
make me "puppetized"
make me LOOK puppetized as well
very sensitive nerve endings
that could literally make one "smile" on demand..but also contort one's looks into all sorts of rather odd versions of "self"
the Team realized
that this "side effect"
could further control
as they could literally "fugly "one up
they named the
manipulation of the cranial nerves
another addition to the Hit of Miss "That'll teach ya"-ness of the Singularity!
nearly everyone embued with nano
whether or not "The Team
plays their facial muscles like a piano
has some kind of movement disorder
from "The Process"
I was never supposed to talk about the
the dead give away that one has been "apped'
they would never be that kind...
and the loop begins again...that this is not brain computer interface nor synthetic telepathy but genuine space aliens
and I had better start respecting
my magical qualities
and the magical beings
"oh for fuck sakes,"I interface
let's just call a clusterfuck a clusterfuck
it works and it doesn't work..
there is no way of getting around it showing...why isn't that a good thing?
why would anyone want to keep synthetic telepathy secret any way is what I never understood..
Hemifacial spasm is painless involuntary twitching of one side of the face due to malfunction of the 7th cranial nerve (facial nerve). This nerve moves the facial muscles, stimulates the salivary and tear glands, enables the front part of the tongue to detect tastes, and controls a muscle involved in hearing.
Hemifacial spasm affects men and women but is more common among middle-aged and older women.
The spasms may be caused by an abnormally positioned artery or loop of an artery that compresses the 7th cranial nerve where it exits the brain stem.
Muscles on one side of the face twitch involuntarily, usually beginning with the eyelid, then spreading to the cheek and mouth. Twitching may be intermittent at first but may become almost continuous. The disorder is essentially painless but can be embarrassing.
