Every act of creation is first an act of destruction - Pablo Picasso

I would like to request two things from our audience. First, if you post to the discussion, please do not comment as a reply to this first post, as I wish to allow my contributors to have their say displayed alongside mine.

Second, to those who I have spoken to and know what's going on here: don't spoil the mystery :p

This is a passion project that is well over a year in the making. It has been somewhat of a struggle, as I had originally aspired to call on the writing prowess of people whose work I hold in very high regard — it did not quite come to fruition. Nevertheless, I would like to thank djkaktus, TheGreatHippo, Kalinin, Metaphysician, PeppersGhost, et al for their interest and support in pursuing this work.

I would also like to thank my contributors, without whom this article could not have been given life. Modern_Erasmus, TheeSherm, TheVolgun, and Woedenaz, who all came onto the project pretty much last minute.

I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to review this since its inception. I have to note, however, that I was fairly deceptive in shopping this around in the early stages — many people only read a small piece of the article at any given time not knowing the larger work it was attached to. If you read this and recognize a section you read, then please let me know so I may include you in the credits.
