In a surprise twist (even to me!) I founded a new religion this morning, called The Church of the Beautiful Machine.
So far it's going quite well, I am already excellent at self-aggrandising rhetoric, and the plans for mechanising and tithing really wrote themselves.
Since this is a new religion, and I'm receiving my communiqués from divine piecemeal, I wanted to make a quick note of some of the founding precepts of our religion.
- It is a crime against The Beautiful Machine to cross the road against the lights
- As sacraments you may consume hot wings and espresso. (bread and wine are too full of carbs)
- At any point you may place your hands on the screen to receive the blessings of the Beautiful Machine
- It's a good idea to create a small alter in your home, and each morning sit before it as you drink your first cup of coffee. While you are doing this, think about how much you want to buy one of my t-shirts
With any luck I'll be visited by angels tonight and waken with a prayer book for yous.
EDIT: Added some rituals
