Summary
"When my brother was in high school he attempted to build a perpetual motion machine, a machine that can do work indefinitely, to save the world. That machine was my brother's experiment; this book is mine. It is in the text where I dissect our relationship and try to understand myself. Writing down my experiences metamorphosizes them in an attempt to keep them close, to always be surrounded by the memories that I often feel so distant from. My research has been investigating photo albums, interviewing my brother and parents, finding out what I was like as a child. I knew there was a purpose, something bigger happening than I could fathom; an unstoppable urge, a movement, a force set in motion forever by writing down the words. What I have found is that there is always hope available and present in times of chaos, even perpetual chaos"--
