"We are on the extreme promontory of the centuries! What is the use of
looking behind at the moment when we must open the mysterious shutters
of the impossible? Time and Space died yesterday. We are already living in
the absolute, since we have already created eternal, omnipresent speed…
Standing on the world's summit we launch once again our insolent challenge to the stars!"
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, "The Futurist Manifesto," 1909
