The problem is that we mere mortals are warped looms- we are simple recieving antennas. Whereas heaven radiates willy-nilly we are highly directional and, by contrast, profoundly limited. Overwhelmed by the cancophony of clamoring frequencies we muffle the muses with buffers and filters. We suffer from image distortion, improper illumination, bounces and blooming, picture ghosts and barber-polling. Our deflection yokes sizzle upon the gangloin of lightnings bursting from our high voltage anode connectors. The commercialism of death has denied us the the x-ray protection circuits and the sand-castle generators we so urgantly need!
