Nowadays the preliminary work is done by an electrically-driven coal-cutter, which in principle is an immensely tough and powerful band-saw, running horizontally instead of vertically, with teeth a couple of inches long and half an inch or an inch thick.
I am merely describing what I have seen. They are currently restrained by physical limitations, excess resources, utility maximization, and coordination. But because of the speed at which the cage has brought you down, and the complete blackness through which you have travelled, you hardly feel yourself deeper down than you would at the bottom of the Piccadilly tube.
I do not believe that there is anything inherently and unavoidably ugly about industrialism. But each fish farm produces waste, which fouls the water in the lake. Modern books for children are rather horrible things, especially when you see them in the mass.

We talked of life on the road. He wore a friendly smile, like a man who is repaying an obligation. In a couple generations, the island has ten thousand rats and has reached its carrying capacity. Without this dance of masks, nothing will be created.
While the puppet is inert, it is animated spontaneously in the moment in such a way that it presents the illusion of a thinking sentient being, but in this example, it is hardly a convincing one. Maybe we can get some water up there.
