As a way of uniting the microcosm and the macrocosm, or uniting subject and object, the DMRI is structured like its object of study: ie. a large part of it is “dark”. Most of the research takes place in an underground liboratory (a cross between a library and a laboratory) in a secret location. However, a great deal of work also takes place outside the liboratory (either releasing the results of successful experiments into the world or carrying out experiments that begin and end in the “real” world) which is not 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.
