As a way of uniting subject and object, much of the DMRI is like that which it studies (i.e. 'dark'). Most of the research takes place in an underground liboratory in a secret location, sometimes with the lights turned out, but a great deal of work also takes place outside, e.g. releasing the results of successful experiments into the world or carrying out experiments that begin and end in the 'real' world, without being credited to the DMRI or any of its staff. Sometimes a literary agent will assume a different identity to set a chain of events in motion, or an existing organisation, or sometimes even a word or phrase, will be infiltrated and steered in a direction that leads to the discovery of new meaning. It is carried out according to the principle of literary chaos theory, which states that the flapping of the pages of a book about butterflies can result in Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
It is very possible that you have already come in contact with the DMRI, and that your arrival at this website is no accident. Such a realisation gives you instant access to a huge amount of meaning that was hitherto unknown to you.
