Oh wow! The interaction of the physicality of the folded document and how that doesn't line up with how it was written (across unfolded columns) is so wild to me. I'm reeling. It's such an unexpected way to get yourself out of the act of writing, to give over even that one more bit of control to the Outside. The transition into the title is such a strong moment, and it wouldn't exist otherwise. We are rewarded for our bravery!

I'm also fascinated by the way this game keeps barreling forward into lists. I hadn't considered how interesting lists are as a procedural/structural justification for connecting things that might not be connected otherwise. Like, if I write "fish justice orthogonal" those words don't have much to do with each other, but if I write them as a list--then they must have something to do with each other! And maybe it becomes a mystery, but it gains meaning by virtue of the presentation. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone other than me haha. 

Thank you for the game! It's really great!

I still not understand the introduction text of the game jam (the extract of the text written by the poet), but I'm glad you liked my document! It was in fact pretty cool to directly write while I saw the end of the column coming closer and closer. It was a nice experiment, and fun to write even if it took me more time than expected (I really appreciate lists but it's the thing that took time because sometimes I was just sitting looking at the screen and the room I was in.... lists were like a slow automatic writing, or just writing thoughts without ordering them, or maybe it's just a way to be comfortable and avoid grammatical errors)

Thanks for creating this game jam !

However, I think we could give a meaning to the idiom fish justice orthogonal

Haha I don't understand Spicer either, but "slow automatic writing" is something very close to what he's talking about, I think. :)
