As in many of Kurt's flights of fancy, this excerpt from an early draft of Omasters begins with a story and ends in a cascading maelstrom of associative ideas and images. Kurt did not think, and therefore did not write, in a strictly linear fashion. His mind packed with references and information, like James Joyce in Finnegans Wake, Kurt seamlessly jumped from one point in space (mind) to another. "BHF deserves a personalized introduction, like St. Puce, the flea under the armpit of Christ as He hung on the Cross: the first communicant. BHF is the first to pass through the Black Hole of the inner man." The excerpt introduces a number of Omaster characters by name.
