A fantasy of interconnected actions, questions and contstraints, drawn directly from the mechanics of the media used. Pulmonic ingressive speech describes the process of producing sounds, single words, or even entire phrases while breathing in. It is a technique common to engastromyths (ventriloquists) and shamans and was used by the founder of the Quaker movment, George Fox, to give his voice an air of mystery and inspiration.
