About

i'm trying to convey the concept of rabies.
rabies is called the lyssavirus, so i'm Lyssa V.
Lyssa is Greek for madness, fury, rage, frenzy.

i'm still working on it.

i think it's a fascinating virus, it travels up the nerves from point of entry up to the brain.
traveling through the axoplasma in a retrograde direction.

there is actually a part of the dog's tongue called the "lyssa," people used to think it was a worm in the tongue that caused rabies and so they would cut it out, but it was really this natural structure that happens to look like a worm.

people are strange.

i don't have the "fury" bit really in my av, because i doubt the rabies virus itself is furious.

i'd rather be a virus.
efficient, mechanical, empty.

Hmm, hmm, hmmm......

Anyway, have a good day!

All our lives we love illusion,
Neatly caught between confusion
And the need to know
we are alive.
(from "God in Three Persons"
