Comments

  • Over The Horizon Radar is another track that reveals a more complex melody when played in reverse.
  • Its title refers to a real technology: "A radar system that makes use of the atmospheric reflection and refraction phenomena to extend its range of detection beyond line of sight. Over-the-horizon radars may be either forward scatter or back scatter systems."
    • Reflexivity is autobiography that is included when the author deems cultural analysis is facilitated by one's private-life information. It may be a suggestion that A:B::B:C is about themselves to facilitate such an analysis.
