So it was that the Red Tower put into production its new, more terrible and perplexing, line of unique novelty items. Among the objects and constructions now manufactured were several of an almost innocent nature. These included tiny, delicate cameos that were heavier than their size would suggest, far heavier, and lockets whose shiny outer surface flipped open to reveal a black reverberant abyss inside, a deep blackness roaring with echoes. Along the same lines was a series of lifelike replicas of internal organs and physiological structures, many of them evidencing an advanced stages of disease and all of them displeasingly warm and soft to the touch. There was a fake disembodied hand on which fingernails would grow several inches overnight and insistently grew back should one attempt to clip them. Numerous natural objects, mostly bulbous gourds, were designed to produce a long, deafening scream whenever they were picked up or otherwise disturbed in their vegetable stillness. Less scrutable were such things as hardened globs of lava into whose rough, igneous forms were sent a pair of rheumy eyes that perpetually shifted their gaze from side to side like a relentless pendulum. And there was also a humble piece of cement, a fragment broken away from any street or sidewalk, that left a most intractable stain, greasy and green, on whatever surface it was placed. But such fairly simple items were eventually followed, and ultimately replaced, by more articulated objects and constructions. One example of this complex type of novelty item was an ornate music box that, when opened, emitted a brief gurgling or sucking sound in emulation of a dying individual's death rattle. Another product manufactured in great quantity at the Red Tower was a pocket watch in a gold casing which opened to reveal a curious timepiece whose numerals were represented by tiny quivering insects while the circling 'hands' were reptilian tongues, slender and pink. But these examples hardly begin to hint at the range of goods that came from the factory during its novelty phase of production. I should at least mention the exotic carpets woven with intricate abstract patterns that, when focused upon for a certain length of time, composed themselves into fleeting phantasmagoric scenes of a kind which might pass through a fever-stricken or even permanently damaged brain.

Il me semble qu'ils confondent but et moyen ceux qui s'effraient par trop de nos progre¨s techniques. Quiconque lutte dans l'unique espoir de biens materiels, en effet, ne recolte rien qui vaille de vivre. Mais la machine n'est pas un but. L'avion n'est pas un but : c'est un outil, un outil comme la charrue. Si nous croyons que la machine abe®me l'homme c'est que, peut-eªtre, nous manquons un peu de recul pour juger les effets de transformations aussi rapides que celles que nous avons subies. Que sont les cent annees de l'histoire de la machine en regard des deux cent mille annees de l'histoire de l'homme? C'est e  peine si nous nous installons dans ce paysage de mines et de centrales electriques. C'est e  peine si nous commene§ons d'habiter cette maison nouvelle, que nous n'avons meªme pas acheve de be¢tir. Tout a change si vite autour de nous : rapports humains, conditions de travail, coutumes. Notre psychologie elle-meªme a ete bousculee dans ses bases les plus intimes. Les notions de separation, d'absence, de distance, de retour, si les mots sont demeures les meªmes, ne contiennent plus les meªmes realites. Pour saisir le monde aujourd'hui, nous usons d'un langage qui fut etabli pour le monde d'hier. Et la vie du passe nous semble mieux repondre e  notre nature, pour la seule raison qu'elle repond mieux e  notre langage. Pour le colonial qui fonde un empire, le sens de la vie est de conquerir. Le soldat meprise le colon. Mais le but de cette conqueªte n'etait-il pas l'etablissement de ce colon? Ainsi dans l'exaltation de nos progre¨s, nous avons fait servir les hommes e  l'etablissement des voies ferrees, e  l'erection des usines, au forage de puits de petrole. Nous avions un peu oublie que nous dressions ces constructions pour servir les hommes. (Terre des Hommes, ch. III)
