Cadmium Flute is a cold-hearted monster.
The inventor of thinking and the author of “how i invented thinking” has had a relatively quiet millennium, despite inventing thinking, recounting in part the story of having done so and preparing several important treaties on hatwear.
Unfortunately much of the earlier years were spent absorbed with research into genetically combining testicles and teats… work that came to a head with the mass production of the testeatulator in 1666.
Only later was it uncovered that the market research, conducted in the 1100s, was no longer valid and apparently people now longed for robotic testicle earrings that bristled when they heard something fancy.
Further, Cadmium remains convinced that at some point a brilliant and disturbing novel entitled “My Life In The Sniff” was written, but no records of it can be found. Some say that it was not in fact a novel at all, but an interpretive dance performed after 6 days of eating “shiny dirt” sometime around 1313. In any case, Cadmium expects to be more “out and about” during the forthcoming 1000: dancing with, sniggering at and rubbing up the people. Look for the cat with the thinking cap on.
As to the writing of Flute, particularly the early, middle and later works, it reads much like a sanctimonious manual for the finest, most delectable imaginable anal probing.
Cadmium Flute lives atop a ramshackle rock with 6 billion really annoying neighbors.
