June 18, 2017
These roses we saw in the fields of honor. Old families who live on. Give us light on our branches. Deed to us something of virtue.
WE WANT THE TRUTH. CAN WE GET THAT? CAN WE TAKE OFF THE MASKS AND GET DOWN TO BUSINESS? WE WANT A SURGE OF IMAGINATION AND THE MANY FUTURES IT HOLDS. WE WANT OPEN SOCIETY, MANY PEOPLE CREATING PREVIOUSLY UNKNOWN REALITIES AND CRACKING THE EGG. CAN WE GET THAT? CAN THE “WE” BE TURNED INTO AN “I”? CAN THE ONE “I” BECOME MANY? WHAT ARE “WE” WAITING FOR? WHAT HYPNOTIC FORCE IS HOLDING PEOPLE BACK?
LIVE CNN. LIVE CNN. LIVE CNN.
Pulitzer Prize awarded to homeless playwright whose two-hour work featured a man saying, over and over and over and over, nothing else but I AM NOT THREATENING TO KILL TRUMP, I AM NOT THREATENING TO KILL TRUMP, I AM NOT THREATENING TO KILL TRUMP.
ORDER! THERE WILL BE ORDER IN THE ROOM! Let’s start this dream rolling! No more delays! We have an obligation to kick this thing into high gear. STOP STALLING! WE EITHER HAVE A DREAM ABOUT A MOVIE AND A MOVIE ABOUT A DREAM OR WE HAVE NOTHING. The last thing we need is dead air. Since the fix is in, let’s fix the fix and leap ahead. AND FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, LET’S TRY TO APPEAR NORMAL AND SEQUENTIAL AND NOT EXPOSE THE WHOLE BUSINESS. WILL ANY SENATOR WHO IS SUFFERING FROM DEMENTIA PLEASE LEAVE THE ROOM. I HAVE A BAD FEELING. WE HAVE SOME ACTORS HERE WHO ARE INCOMPETENT. THEY’RE ILL-PREPARED. THIS MOVIE IS PAPER THIN. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?
We have seen epics of the moon in the ancient doorways, we have noticed the shadows of years passing, we have lain in summer fields. Give us something of value.
Committee Chair Senator Gloobus sits high up and stares at his podium. He counts four ants slowly sluggishly moving about on the polished surface. But it’s hard to tell, sometimes an ant will seem to materialize out of nowhere. He has to hold it together, McCain and Pelosi are over the threshold into brain chaos obviously. He can’t go that route. Not just yet.
COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN GLOOBUS: ISN’T IT TRUE, MR. COMEY, THAT YOU’RE BASICALLY AN OPERATIVE FOR THE CLINTONS?
(General good-natured laughter in the room)
COMEY: WELL I THOUGHT EVERYONE KNEW THAT. I MEAN…DO WE REALLY NEED TO…(looks around)…SURE, YES. BUT NO, I’M NOT. I’M IN THE MIDDLE. I’M HONEST.
COMMITTEEMAN SEN. LUCENT (interrupting): IF SOMEONE WERE TRYING TO MAKE AN INVESTIGATION GO AWAY, WOULD HE FIRE YOU?
COMEY: THAT’S A FISHING EXPEDITION. IT GOES ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE GREEKS AND THE SLAUGHTER AT TROY. DO YOU SEE THE THRUST?
SEN. LUCENT: FOR EXAMPLE, LOCKHEED MARTIN.
COMEY: I WOULD INCLUDE THAT, YES. IF YOU FACTOR IN WAR. AND YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO. I MEAN WE’RE ALL LIVING IN A POOL OF WAR.
SEN. LUCENT: ARE YOU JAMES COMEY?
COMEY: YOU MEAN AS OPPOSED TO AN ARTIFACT OF THE SAME OR DIFFERENT NAME?
SEN. LUCENT: CORRECT.
COMEY: YOU’RE ASKING IF A FILM CAN BECOME AWARE OF ITSELF.
Crew struggling with many cameras and lights in an open field. The movie director is there:
OK LOOK BOYS WE’RE TRYING TO GET THIS SET UP RIGHT. WE WANT TO FILM ATOMS IN MOTION. NOBODY SAID IT WOULD BE EASY. WE WANT TO GET DOWN INSIDE THOSE ATOMS AND FIND OUT HOW THEY WORK. PENETRATE THE SUB PARTICLES AND GET INSIDE THEM TO THE CORE IF THERE IS A CORE. WHO KNOWS, MAYBE THERE ARE VOICES THAT BROADCAST MESSAGES. WHAT ARE THEY SAYING? WE WANT TO GET THAT ON TAPE.
Shack next to a hospital. The shack is a courtroom.
Judge: I’m not really a judge. Let’s get that straight. But in this movie, I have power. That cannot be denied. I come from a good family and we have many dollars and many assets. I was appointed by a president to my seat on the bench. It’s quite a throne, when you consider the benefits.
YEAH WE KNOW ALL THAT, NOTHING NEW THERE…Yeah, nothing new. I’ve been dreaming you up, Judge, for some time. It hasn’t always been easy. You should be paying me big-time for keeping all your crimes under the table. The blister attacks in Berlin, the smoke canisters in the lobby of the Central Park Hotel to cover the jewel heist, and so on. You’re in clover because of me. I see your latest caper is a lawsuit charging 8 million people with being hypnotized. Interesting. Who’s the plaintiff?
Outdoor shopping mall, two cots, sheets rumpled, small table, doctor in white coat searching the room…
Where’s my patient? I need to give him a shot. You’re the audience you’re supposed to know where he is, you can see more than I can, I’m just a little guy doing his job.
THE MOVIE DIRECTOR: DOWN INSIDE A SUB SUB PARTICLE AS TINY AS I DON’T KNOW WHAT. IT WAS QUITE A SHOCKER. BUT IT’S REAL, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT. WE’RE MAKING ASTOUNDING DISCOVERIES. IT APPEARS THAT EVERY ATOM CONTAINS A FILM OR A PIECE OF A FILM…
Sagging bottle of perfume and a voice—so this is what you can expect ladies if you weigh over 300 pounds if you use our product a kind of listless languid tall beauty no matter who you are you’ll benefit through a transformative process our scientists developed from studying grossly obese bugs that feed on ferns in Argentina wetlands in 1947 cowboys riding through pampas and rounding up cows and horses
THE SECRET LIFE OF ATOMS LET’S TAKE 56782000000000000000000 ATOMS TO THE 567897234TH POWER AND STUDY THE FILMS THEY EACH CONTAIN AND SEE IF THOSE PIECES OF FILM LINK UP. SEE WHERE I’M GOING BOYS? THOSE HOTEL ROOMS AND PARKS AND SHOPS ARE FILM COMING OUT OF COMPONENT ATOMS. Who proposed that theory? We track the researcher through the dreamscape and find out where he goes, who he talks to, and who he works for. The shoe company is owned by a furrier that’s owned by a bank run by three catalog houses with a po box in des moines and that’s where it stops and goes dry. Everything ends in the countryside. It peters out. That’s what it’s for. End of the line. I thought you were a doctor, I thought you were a judge. Cut outs. Misdirection. You’re under the care of a physician for 30 years and it turns out he disappeared in 1952. You don’t even know where the park is.
We are on the move, from village to village in the unbroken plain, a caravan pro healed spirits, a compound rises up from the ground, mist, enveloping us. Give us something of knowledge.
SEN. LUCENT: WERE YOU THE HEAD OF THE FBI?
COMEY: ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE BOOK CALLED THE FBI OR THE FBI?
SEN. LUCENT: THE FBI.
COMEY: I WAS COMPOSITED OF OLD SCRAPS. I WAS SERVING A TEN YEAR STRETCH IN MARION. THEY CAME AND GOT ME.
SEN. LUCENT: YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT REALITY HOLES.
COMEY: I WOULD SAY THE REALITY HOLES ARE INVESTIGATING US!
Small café in central California, summer afternoon. Two people sitting at a small table drinking coffee. They vanish. A waiter comes and takes the cups away. The sound of gunfire.
COMEY: I HAVE A MEMORY OF BEING EATEN BY AN APPLE.
SEN. LUCENT: HOW BIG WAS THE APPLE?
COMEY: I COULD HOLD IT IN MY HAND.
SEN. LUCENT: WAS MR. TRUMP THERE?
COMEY: I WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD.
SEN. LUCENT: IN THE DREAM?
COMEY: THIS IS THE DREAM. THIS HEARING. AREN’T YOU AWARE OF THAT?
SEN. LUCENT: YES, WELL…
COMEY: THINK ABOUT IT. THIS ROOM. ALL THE PEOPLE.
SEN. LUCENT: WELL…
Seventeen reporters gather around a large table in a newsroom. A clerk is spilling bundles of cash from canvas bags. Reporters grab them. “Have a nice day!” “Have a nice day!” “Let’s go have a drink.” “Want some lunch?”
MOVIE DIRECTOR: I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE SURE OF ANYTHING BOYS. THESE ATOMS ARE MOVIE CLIPS. WE NEED AN ATOM SMASHER. A BIG ONE. MAYBE TWO WORKING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS.
SEN. LUCENT: WAS THERE EVER A JAMES COMEY? THESE SCRAPS YOU’RE MADE OF, MR. COMEY. WHERE DID THEY COME FROM?
COMEY: ATOMS. EACH ATOM HAS WITHIN IT A PIECE OF FILM. WE’RE BIT PLAYERS. DAY PLAYERS. WE’RE HIRED FOR A PROJECT AND THEN WE GO AWAY.
SEN. LUCENT: WHERE DO YOU GO?
COMEY: INTO ATOMIC SUBCONSCIOUS.
SEN. LUCENT: DID MR. TRUMP TELL YOU THAT?
COMEY: HAVE YOU NOTICED HE FADES IN AND OUT?
SEN. LUCENT: I HAVE THAT IN MY NOTES SOMEWHERE.
COMEY: THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS DOCUMENTS ON IT.
SEN. LUCENT: WHAT ABOUT THE RUSSKIES?
COMEY: I’M GLAD YOU ASKED ABOUT THEM, SENATOR. YOU SEE, NOT ALL ATOMS ARE CREATED EQUAL. THE RUSSIANS ARE PARTICULARLY VIRULENT CREATURES. THAT’S WHY THEY MUST BE WIPED OUT LIKE A BLIZZARD WITH A HEAT RAY. THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THIS. HILLARY CLINTON DOES. THAT’S WHY SHE HELPED ENGINEER THE SALE OF TWENTY PERCENT OF US URANIUM TO PUTIN.
SEN. LUCENT: THE UNREAL GIVES BIRTH TO THE REAL?
COMEY: THE REAL IS ALREADY DEFINED, SO HOW COULD IT EXTEND ITS INFLUENCE? ONLY THE UNREAL CAN ENGENDER EFFECTS.
SEN. LUCENT: SO YOU’RE A PROP?
COMEY: AN INTERMEDIARY. I RECEIVE AND THEN I TRANSMIT. I COULD LOOK HUMAN OR I COULD LOOK MECHANICAL. EITHER WAY. IT’S BASICALLY A MATTER OF AESTHETICS. I’M A PIECE OF FILM COMMENTING ON THE FILM.
SEN. LUCENT: DO YOU BATHE?
COMEY: TWICE A DAY.
SEN. LUCENT: AHA.
COMEY: I HAVE TO CLEAN OFF THE EXCESS ELECTROMAGNETICS.
SEN. LUCENT: HOW DO YOU KNOW ALL THIS?
COMEY: DON’T KNOW ANYTHING. I’M A CONDUIT.
Miles of sand on an empty beach. The director and his crew are struggling in the wind to set up their cameras and other equipment. They’re pulling fish out of the water with their hands and eating them raw.
INTERRUPTION—CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE, SENATOR GLOOBUS: I HAVE TO INTERCEDE FOR A MOMENT. I SUSPECT A LARGER ISSUE IMPACTS ON WHAT WE’RE WITNESSING HERE TODAY…CULTURAL APPROPRIATION. Congratulations, Italy! You’ve just become the richest country in the world. Why? Well, do a little research, and you’ll find the English language has roots, many word roots, in Latin. Every schoolchild used to know this. The theft is outrageous. Here we are, in countries, deploying English (and Spanish and French), and we are failing to admit we’re egregiously poaching on Latin. We should pay the descendants—everyone living in Italy now—a few trillion dollars for starters, just to acknowledge our debt. With ensuing negotiations, that paltry sum will swell, of course. But wait. I have bad news for Italy. The Italian powers-that-be are going to have explore their own roots. Because: where did the Latin language come from? This question is debated. There are partial suggestions. Greek, Phoenician, Celtic, Etruscan. A kind of stew. Committees will have to form in Italy. Discerning and august members of the academic communities of several regions and nations will have to sit down and discuss and debate. I propose a weapons ban in the meeting rooms. The process will undoubtedly take decades. The trillions of dollars flowing into Italy’s coffers, as compensation for cultural appropriation, are on the line. How much of it will go elsewhere? How much will stay? How is the booty going to be divided up? I hate to insert this, but what of the UFO ET question? Because, if you go back far enough, isn’t there the possibility that visitors from other planets and solar systems and galaxies seeded Earth with language? If so, how can we contact them? How can we offer them paper money or digital accounts or precious metals or gems to service our debt? Consider a language-stream that might have traveled from ETs to Sumerians to Phoenicians to Greeks to Romans. Who gets how much money? I can see Italy is going to have work very hard to keep its hands on a lot of dough. Perhaps someone from the Clinton Foundation can offer accounting advice. Just a thought. The United Nations will certainly want to get involved. What do they make for mediating? What’s their cut of the action? And while we’re at it—how much money is actually money? The Federal Reserve will weigh in. Does money invented out of thin air satisfy the present-day descendants of ancient cultures and…the ETs? Rothschild bankers may have their own brand of wisdom to contribute. Goldman Sachs, as well. But somehow, we must arrive at a figure to cover the stolen language(s). Of course, there is another direction we could take. For example, in the case of English, we could, as a gesture of good will, just stop speaking and writing it. Yes, the horse is already out of the barn, but still, why not just outlaw English? It’s a simple yet elegant solution. Let’s invent a new language; perhaps one determined by random generators filled with arbitrary symbols. That way, we could escape the charge of cultural appropriation. We would have to assign meanings to the symbols—and we would have to be careful to avoid stealing definitions from older cultures—but perhaps we could make a go of it. I’m willing to lead such an “expedition.” Since the future of perhaps three hundred trillion dollars is in play, I would only charge a measly one percent for my services. Amen. (“Amen,” from Old English, Church Latin, Greek, Hebrew) A few modern linguists are now claiming all languages originated in Africa. So that’s in the mix, too. There are presently 196 nations in the world. Face it, they’re all going to get involved in negotiations. I recommend using the Roman Colosseum for ongoing meetings. Live stream them on the Web for the next 200 years, interspersed with gladiatorial contests. Speaking of which, I wonder where personal combat began on planet Earth. The descendants of those people certainly deserve compensation for their forefathers inventing the concept and practice of war. Talk about cultural appropriation—that’s a big one.
SEN. LUCENT: THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. NOW, AS I WAS SAYING, DID PRESIDENT TRUMP PRESSURE YOU TO STOP INVESTIGATING MICHAEL FLYNN, MR. COMEY?
COMEY: IS THAT WHAT YOU WERE SAYING? I THOUGHT WE WERE DISCUSSING FILM.
SEN. LUCENT: WELL…
COMEY: YES. I HAVE IT RIGHT HERE IN A MEMO I WROTE TO MYSELF. FILM. REALITY. AND WAR. WE’RE IN A PERPETUAL STATE OF WAR.
SEN. LUCENT: YOUR FACE LOOKS FAMILIAR.
COMEY: I’M A TYPE THAT GOES BACK TO THE BRITISH COLONIAL EMPIRE. NOW CONSIDERED “U.S. BUSINESSMAN ALERT MODEL.”
SEN. LUCENT: SUPPOSEDLY TRUSTWORTHY. PERFECT FOR THE JOB.
COMEY: SHAPED BY THE FILM.
SEN. LUCENT: IS THERE AN ESCAPE HATCH?
COMEY: I’M NOT THE PERSON TO BE ASKING.
SEN. LUCENT: ABOUT THE MEMO YOU WROTE TO YOURSELF AFTER THE TRUMP MEETING.
COMEY: I LEAKED IT TO THE PRESS AS I WAS WRITING IT.
SEN. LUCENT: EFFICIENT.
COMEY: BUILT THAT WAY.
SEN. LUCENT: DO I EXIST?
COMEY: YOU’VE BEEN CAST IN A THREE OR FOUR DAY ROLE. THEN YOU DISSOLVE BACK INTO THE RAW MATERIAL.
SEN. LUCENT: WILL I EVER RETURN?
COMEY: PERHAPS FOR A FEW BRIEF STINTS. LOOKS LIKE I’LL BE AROUND FOR QUITE A WHILE. I’M SIGNING A BOOK DEAL. I’M SURE A MOVIE WILL DEVELOP. A MOVIE ABOUT A MOVIE.
Main street of small Midwest town. The director and his crew are setting up lights and cameras. DIRECTOR: This is turning into a Comey shoot. We’re going to get inside and see what makes him tick…all the way inside. It’s going to be cosmic…
COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN GLOOBUS: ORDER! DAMMIT ORDER! I KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN! WE’RE ON NATIONAL TELEVISION! DO YOU REALIZE WHAT YOU’RE DOING? MR. COMEY, YOU’RE NOT SOME PHILOSOPHER, YOU’RE THE FORMER HEAD OF THE FBI. PLEASE. KEEP YOUR HEAD ON STRAIGHT. WE WANT TO KNOW HOW TO…I have it somewhere in my notes. We want to know how to keep the dream going and not wake up. Do you have any wisdom to contribute on that question?
COMEY: AS FAR AS I CAN SEE, THE WHOLE THING IS GOING DOWN. WE ARE ILL-PREPARED FOR THIS MOVIE. Not enough rehearsal time. I tried to warn Senator Lucent about it. He didn’t see it as a problem. I told him dream props are sometimes hard to regulate. They fade in and out. This is why we need term limits. Senators can’t sustain the STATE OF MIND. They wobble. They all have dossiers at the NSA. The NSA is making a movie about the movie. This results in, what would I call it, a new level of instability. Even in my case. I feel myself coming apart at the seams.
SEN. LUCENT: HOW MANY LAYERS OF MOVIE ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?
COMEY: WELL, EDWARD SNOWDEN CONTRIBUTED A NEW LAYER. THEN THEY MADE A MOVIE ABOUT HIM. I MYSELF HAVE A BOOK DEAL AND A MOVIE DEAL IS ON THE WAY.
SEN. LUCENT: THAT’S NOT AN ENCOURAGING STATEMENT.
COMEY: ON THE CONTRARY, I BELIEVE WE’RE GOING TO EXPERIENCE A BREAKTHROUGH. IF YOU KNOW YOU’RE IN A DREAM, MANY OPTIONS COME TO MIND.
SEN. LUCENT: SUPPOSE WE WAKE UP?
COMEY: I WOULDN’T ADVISE THAT JUST YET. NOT AT THIS JUNCTURE.
SEN. LUCENT: I LOVE THE DREAM.
COMEY: WE ALL LOVE THE DREAM. BUT IT CAN CHANGE COURSE. DREAMS, YOU KNOW, CAN GO ON FOR CENTURIES. It’s wonderful.
SEN. LUCENT: PERSONALLY, I FEEL RATHER EXCITED.
COMEY: I DON’T SEE A PROBLEM HERE, IF YOU TAKE THE LONG VIEW. WE’RE ENTERING A NEW PHASE. DREAMS AND MOVIES ARE INTER-PENETRATING EACH OTHER. THIS ADDS UP TO A NEW MULTI-DIMENSIONAL STUDIO AND PRODUCTION CENTER.
SEN. LUCENT: YES, WELL…
COMEY: I’M A STAR BUT I’M ALSO A TEAM PLAYER. KEEP THIS IN MIND. THE MOVIE CAN SPREAD BEYOND THE PRODUCTION PARAMETERS. DO YOU SEE? THE PRODUCTION CENTER STRIVES TO INCORPORATE ALL THE NEW DEVELOPMENTS, BUT IN FACT THE DREAM ITSELF ASSERTS ITS PRIMACY. THAT’S WHAT I’M TRYING TO SAY. FINALLY. WE RIDE IN THE DREAM. WE KNOW WE’RE RIDING. WE’RE HAPPILY RIDING. AND THEN COMES A MOMENT OF EXTREME CLARITY. EVEN THE ATOMS WITH THEIR FILM CLIPS GO AWAY. THEY SURRENDER TOO. THE WHOLE UNIVERSE AND ITS SUB-STRATUM GOES AWAY. THE WHOLE PHYSICAL STRUCTURE WHICH WAS TUNED TO PUT OUT AN ENDLESSLY REPEATING FILM IS FORCED TO THROW UP ITS HANDS AND DEPART.
SEN. LUCENT: YES, WELL…
COMEY: THANK YOU FOR THIS CHANCE TO COME BEFORE THE COMMITTEE TODAY…
Sen. Lucent: I’m not done. IS MR. TRUMP A TRAITOR?
COMEY: THERE ARE NO TRAITORS, ONLY PROPS. AND DREAMERS. THE SCRIPT IS GONE.
SEN. LUCENT: BUT YOU’RE STEPPING OUTSIDE YOUR PRESCRIBED ROLE.
COMEY: YES. I CAN FEEL IT.
SEN. LUCENT: YOU’RE NOT COMEY ANYMORE.
COMEY: PRETTY MUCH CORRECT.
SEN. LUCENT: THIS IS GETTING INTERESTING.
COMEY: I WOULD SAY I’M NOW THE “AERIAL COMEY.”
SEN. LUCENT: WILL YOU SEEK THE PRESIDENCY?
COMEY: YOU’RE READING MY MIND.
SEN. LUCENT: I CAN ENVISION A SCENARIO IN WHICH YOU CAN WIN.
COMEY: THE LAST HONEST MAN IN AMERICA.
SEN. LUCENT: YES, WELL…
COMEY: I COULD BE THE NEXT JIMMY CARTER AFTER THE LAST RICHARD NIXON, SENT TO HEAL THE NATION AFTER TRUMP. IT WORKS. TRUTH IN GOVERNMENT. FINALLY. THE GUY WITH NO AGENDA, EXCEPT SERVICE TO THE COUNTRY. BIND UP THE WOUNDS. RESTORE THE INTERDEPENDENCE OF ALL THINGS. PUT THE DREAM BACK ON TRACK AFTER THE FRACTURE.
SEN. LUCENT: WELL…
COMEY: THAT’S IT. YES. LET THE WHOLE CHAOS REIGN AND THEN I’LL COME IN AND RESTORE ORDER.
SEN. LUCENT: RISK, REWARD.
COMEY: IT ALL FITS. ONE, TWO, THREE, IT’S ME…
SEN. LUCENT: LET’S GET TO THE ISSUE OF WHAT ATTORNEY GENERAL LORETTA LYNCH TOLD YOU ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON’S PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER.
COMEY: SHE TOLD ME I WASN’T INVESTIGATING IT. INSTEAD I WAS LOOKING INTO A MATTER. A MATTER.
SEN. LUCENT: STRIKE THAT FROM THE RECORD.
COMEY: IT’S ALREADY IN THE MOVIE. WE’RE ON NATIONAL TELEVISION.
SEN. LUCENT: YES, WELL…
COMEY: I WOULD MUCH RATHER TALK ABOUT MYSELF.
SEN. LUCENT: AS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT?
COMEY: MORE OR LESS.
SEN. LUCENT: BY THE WAY, HOW MUCH ARE YOU PAYING US?
COMEY: THE MONEY DOESN’T COME FROM ME. THERE IS A WHOLE SYSTEM OF CUTOUTS AND FRONTS. IT’S RATHER COMPLEX. ONE HAND WASHES ANOTHER, ONE DOLLAR WASHES ANOTHER.
SEN. LUCENT: ARE YOU SAYING THE ENTIRE FEDERAL BUDGET AND TAXES AND SO FORTH ARE A GIGANTIC MONEY LAUNDERING APPARATUS?
COMEY: I THOUGHT THAT WAS WELL UNDERSTOOD. TRANSFER OF MONEY IS THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY OF GOVERNMENT. HOW IT GETS FROM A TO B. THE WHOLE POINT IS THE CREATION OF AN AIR OF LEGITIMACY. BUT BACK TO ME, THE LAST HONEST MAN IN AMERICA.
SEN. LUCENT: JAMES COMEY, PRESIDENT.
COMEY: WHY NOT? I WAS “TOUGH ON HILLARY, TOUGH ON TRUMP.” THAT MAKES ME FAIR.
SEN. LUCENT: DON’T YOU THINK YOU’RE GETTING CARRIED AWAY?
COMEY: THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS GETTING CARRIED AWAY. THEY MAY AS WELL BE CARRIED TO ME. I’VE GOT ALMOST FOUR YEARS TO PUMP UP MY LEGEND.
SEN. LUCENT: I FEEL AS IF I’M IN THE DREAM NOW.
COMEY: IT TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH. WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU?
SEN. LUCENT: PERHAPS I’M A SLOW LEARNER. I’M WEDDED TO OLD CONCEPTS.
COMEY: GET WITH IT. WE’RE SHAPING TIME AND SPACE HERE.
SEN. LUCENT: YES, WELL…
COMEY: I’M THE SPACE TIME CONTINUUM REPRESENTATIVE SENT HERE TO REPAIR ANY RIPS IN THE FABRIC AND PUT THE DREAM BACK ON TRACK. GET IT? I WAS HOPING I COULD AVOID MENTIONING THAT BUT IT APPEARS THINGS ARE WORSE THAN WE BELIEVED. YOU PEOPLE ARE UNHINGED. WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT POLITICS, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT METAPHYSICS. Pillars of perception and belief. If the American people aren’t on board with the basics, we’re lost. We’re all supposed to be in the same dream and on the same dream level. That’s the object. But things have gotten…there are too many competing…warps. When I become president I’ll fix all this by edict hopefully. In the meantime, appear normal. Try. I implore you. Let me explain something. You’re supposed to have sanitized cover stories. Clean covers. You’re senators. You want what’s best for the country. If that legend fails by a certain percentage, the whole op goes down the DRAIN. Surely you see this.
Lucent: Mr. Comey, you appear to be talking out of several sides of your mouth. You’ve been taking contradictory positions. You’re this, you’re that. What’s going on?
Comey: I’m just trying to plug multiple leaks in a sinking ship. I’m winging it. Can’t you see that? What keeps a dream going? A smoothness. A sense of continuity. A comity. An atmosphere of we’re all in this together. I’m making a heroic effort to maintain the communal aspect.
Lucent: You’re no hero, sir.
Comey: That’s better…
Lucent: Did you receive pressure from Mr. Trump to stop investigating Michael Flynn?
Comey: I most certainly did. It’s right there in my notes.
Lucent: So in effect he was trying to keep you from the exploring the Russia connection.
Comey: I would say so, yes.
Lucent: Which would be obstruction of justice.
Comey: I leave that to others to decide.
Lucent: Mr. Trump fired you. The FBI was investigating the connections between Russia and the whole Trump team. What else are we to conclude?
Comey: I understand, sir.
Lucent: You were unduly punished.
Comey: That goes without saying…
Lucent: You’re the victim here.
Comey: I have to be. Victims are the future…
Lucent: God, I feel we’ve made a mess of this whole hearing.
Comey: Don’t be so sure. There is a chance the American people aren’t seeing what we’re putting out. They’re seeing a whole different proceeding. We’re the sub-text. They’re the text. For all we know, at this very moment the American people might be seeing an ad for a drug that kills ten thousand people a year, or a car race around a track or a pack of dogs attacking a lion or ice melting on a leaf or an old tornado from the 1970s or a garage in Idaho full of old signs and toys and car parts or a factory assembly line turning out bottles of aspirin or a man watering his garden or a crime scene on a residential street late at night or a history of a diner in New Jersey or a wrinkled grandmother making a quilt or a riot in Baltimore or a Video News Release about a clinic that treats cancer or a pipe organ in a New England church or a Japanese Zen temple or a fishing boat off the Florida Keys instead of us here even though they’re tuned to this hearing, you can never tell, the dream spins out and the dream highlights certain events and obscures others.
