Mysterious red-haired woman in Victorian dress in the winter parkCode Of The Shocking Pink Illuminatus
(To Be Read With Closed Eyes)

Never surrender your Transylvanian soul.
They have the money, the power, the logic; theirs are the
guns, the good beer, the air-conditioning, and the light of day.
But we have the Mad Science.
We draw the blood of destiny. We autograph madness. We
scribble in the margins of the books of Fate.
We are the professionals.
We are the grand meddlers.
We hum thoughtcrime in barbershop quartets; we throw open the
vast doomgate of Things Best Left Unknown; we penetrate the great
telepathic obscenities of salad (if you use Russian Dressing, you
are one of THEM! Be warned: we know where you hide your tuba.)
We are concealed, but we are by no means gone; subtle, but
Let them control What Is.
We are the caretakers of What Might Be.
