Threads are born some 70 light years from here on a planet called
"Yuznetpost". On the mountainous surface of this world live a small
nomadic civilization of people called simply "Posts". 

They are an extremely religious people. Their entire culture is based on
the idea that wisdom and enlightenment is derived from a blissful state of
contemplation or "not-doing". So as these Posts engage themselves in the
"not-doing", tiny "threads"" begin to form under their arms and eventually
surround them in a cocoon. 

Inside the cocoon, each Post connects to the Universe through his
"non-being" and make contact with the "Daemon". This is the intelligence
that surrounds and binds the universe together (like the Force in Star
Wars). As the Post makes contact with the "Daemon", he sheds his "threads"
like a butterfly being reborn. This discarded material travels along an
"Ethereal-net". This eventually interconnects with the "Inter-net" and
finally connects to the USENET (doesn't everything) where we see these
discarded remains as text based messages. The "Post" experiances Satori
and will usually be impossible to understand for 3 days.

"In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.
In the pursuit of Tao, every day something dropped.

Less and Less is done
Until non-action is achieved.
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.

The world is ruled by letting things take their course.
It cannot be ruled by interfering."

                                       Lao Tsu - Tao Te Ching 48

I hope this clears up the situation.
