The Patna

The Patna
“The little machine shook and rocked tumultuously, and the crimson nape of that lowered neck, the size of those straining thighs, the immense heaving of that dingy, striped green-and-orange back, the whole burrowing effort of that gaudy and sordid mess, troubled one’s sense of probability with a droll and fearsome effect, like one of those grotesque and distinct visions that scare and fascinate one in a fever.” 
Lord Jim, Joseph Conrad

The stone mirror of Uqbar

The lowlands of Tsai Khaldun and the Axa Delta marked the southern frontier of Uqbar and on the islands of the delta wild horses procreate.
… As a result of the religious persecutions of the thirteenth century, the orthodox believers of Uqbar sought refuge on these islands, where to this day their obelisks remain and where it is not uncommon to unearth their stone mirrors.
The impostor magician Smerdis one of the heresiarchs of Uqbar had declared the visible universe is an illusion or (more precisely) a sophism. Mirrors… are an abomination because they multiply and disseminate that universe.
