it's like . . . it's like dancing on a million oceans. it's like flying through a hurricane, and seeing every last temperature change and pressure change and breath of wind. it's like standing at the nexus of all the information in the universe and seeing, before it even gets to you, how it will all go together.
and you just grab the threads of execution, the datapaths themselves, and you pull and mold them, streams of actinic blue blasting through mental fingers.
the code isn't what's important. the code is just structure. a rock here to divert, then reinforce the far bank . . . what's important is the flow, the raw data.
sometimes you can find the crux.
