Strangeness in canon-synching

since no organism has perfect understanding
the most important part of spreadsheet synching
is the accommodation of anomalies

messages theat defy existing conventions
exceptions to aristotle
jumping out of the normal rules of the game

to ignore them could be suicide

so evolution must have made provision
for responding without thinking

comprehansion =0
importance = ?infinity

so harold bloom makes 'strangeness'
his primary criterion of canonicity
(or better
enduring rereadable irreducible

there are more things under heaven
stranger than we can imagine

now in the early 21st century
this fringe attracts the transgressive
taboo kinky sex
insane drug psychosis
occult magick mystical
violence sadism intimidation
extrasensory extraterrestrial
