      There was a city planner, who wrote little novels with buildings. His poems were full of life, and his buildings were full of life, and this meta-level and reciprocal ignorance of building inhabitants and novel characters was very pleasant for the city planner. Until he begun to question his own style.

      The diggers came and wrecking balls flew, the inhabitants protested, but the characters were unable to do something about it. Everything desappeared. City planner was fired. Silence was invented.
