hope code -- qtime



Function: a condition that goes forward hen qTime evaluates to rue when sent GogMagog.

Here micha employs methods from the transCoder software development kit. qTime, presumably "queer time," "permits the executions of a program to run out side of conventional computational narratives" (transCoder documentation) Such a time gestures toward the world view built into the unmarked time of "normal" code.

theSoftBody is an object in the code and the argument GogMagog seems to reference the biblical names of nation enemies  of God's people who will come to attack the Christians at the end of the world.  On various websites, the atrocities of gay civil liberties, such as gay marriage (another border transgression obviously), are attributed to Gog and Magog.  micha essentially queers that association, flipping the proverbial script.

Just as the Transborder Immigrant Tool aligns itself with walkingtools be drawing upon its library, so hope code aligns itself with transCoder.
