I have been re-reading this old classic of Surrealism and was taken again with some extracts: Convulsive beauty will be veiled-erotic, fixed-explosive, magic-circumstantial, or it will not be. However trying too hard to understand this kind of love or beauty, would lead to an interpretive delirium [that] begins only when man, ill-prepared, is taken by a sudden fear in the forest of symbols. scan0001

DSCN1101Condensation turbine direct fit and 2-cylinder queued drawing (above). This is a steam turbine whose operating cycle ends with the condensation of steam. These turbines are used to drive the generators at all large steam and atomic power plants, as the propulsion engines of ships and to drive the turbo blowers of blast furnaces.These condensing turbines often have several stages and a complete system for regenerative heating of feed water.
