Will involve training a deep neural net on some source corpora and then provoking it to emit texts

Neuralgae (working title) has turned into a sort of graphic novel: a succession of images generated by a feedback loop on a heavily tweaked version of the Deepdreams algorithm. The text is generated by a markov algorithm on the WordNet synset definitions for the image classes. Example:

image77
box turtle chiefly nocturnal insects; some or
tiger cat medium-sized terriers with tissue paper;
Australian terrier small piece of a distensible
eel voracious snakelike marine mollusk usually
spiny lobster warm-water seabird having a mechanical
sea urchin shallow-water echinoderms characterized by means
leatherback turtle wide-ranging marine gastropods of books
tiger a whistling sound a group

The code for Neuralgae is now up, with a fairly detailed README

I'll be posting a web version of the finished text once I've cleaned up a few formatting issues
