The large-scale form for ME mirrors the classic seven yogic steps as follows:

1. Preconscious ME, Open Vowel Space
2. ME Builds the Language Wall
3. ME Sings His Narcissistic Canon
4. ME Sings His Greatest Song
5. ME Speaks to the Crowd.
6. ME Speaks to His Prompter
7. ME Is Cast Into the Future and Dies
