Scesis Onomaton


Scesis Onomaton (ske’-sis-o-no’-ma-ton): 1. A sentence constructed only of nouns and adjectives (typically in a regular pattern).  2. A series of successive, synonymous expressions.

1. My age. My gender. My height. My weight. My hair color. My race. My marital status. My license plates. My IPS. My email. My cellphone. My account numbers. My credit history. My prescriptions. My DNA. My retinas. My fingerprints. My face.

My God!

I am information, therefore I am.

2. Wherever I go, somebody’s watching. Wherever I am, somebody knows. Whatever I do, somebody sees it. Whomever I’m with, somebody records it. Toll booths. Traffic lights. Sidewalks. Parking lots. For public safety and law enforcement, ok.  But not you–you information-sucking market research leech! Get my permission! Pay me a commission!
