 For due to the lack or dearth or scarcity of any matter
temperature or time the shade became or was nondimensional and
uberfinite less than nothingness and thus there if there can be given
any logical meaning.Because of the lucky lack of logic there surged a
creative entity who mandated instantaneously the CENTRE OF TIME which
manifested itself from the strange shade which had spawned the
illogical WYRD and the omniscient intellect entity protocosmic
being.So sence the essence of a discontinuum anomaly is matter reeling
in from the devastated finite OF PASTS essentialy obstructed PREpaleochaotic wyrd ANIMISTIC ENTITY/entitys so time may abscond into the future
with the cosmic plane backing up into the wyrd beyond in formless instantly sapient awareness cognizant by the fates
 adding déjà vu probability in every matrix direction as the the
stellar plane expands at unobstructed speeds to feed the fire of
future existence.
As the entity is stressed beyond the ideals of good destined
advancement the negative force would build to a degree and worrys the
oldest one in the CENTRE OF TIME.working names EROS,OR ALLAH.

I absolutely agree with all of these, and would especially like to emphasize 5 and 6. Far too often I see folks having to defend their steampunk style because its not of a most strict genera. Well said all around.

Steampunk is Victorian science fiction
Introduction
  Steampunk is the science fiction of the steam age. Where conventional science fiction looks forward and asks "What will the future be like?" steampunk looks backward and asks "How might the Victorian Age have been different?" Though the genre of steampunk began as a subset of cyberpunk, weaving stories of advanced technology and dystopian society set during the 19th century, it was anticipated by the scientific romances of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
  Steampunk is characterized primarily by the adaptation of advanced technology into a steam age context, producing a society that looks like the Victorian world but which enjoys an even greater level of complexity. Fashion adheres to the norms of the 19th century, including top hats, bustle gowns, corsets, and frock coats; however, it is further enhanced by Victorian re-imaginings of modern devices or by capitalizing upon a "next-generation" approach to steam age production technology (for example, sharper colors made available by chemical dyes, or exotic weaves in the cloth).
In fact, a fair amount of steampunk technology and the steampunk environment are historically accurate, or follow historical fact closely. Many of the incredible devices imagined by steampunk authors and enthusiasts were actually imagined, theorized, or even constructed by 19th and early 20th century thinkers. The railroad and the steamship were revolutionary inventions, but along with them came mechanized factories, the potential for mass-production, steam-powered automobiles, and countless other inventions that would be copied or fully realized in the post-steam world.
   Steampunk is a genre that well represents both aspects of "science fiction," for creates a harmonious balance between pure speculation and historical reality. In re-imagining modern conveniences in the form of Victorian machines, steampunk offers a form of liberation from the homogenization of modern design and the oppressive cult of "the casual" that has increasingly dominated society. Steampunk looks back, dreamily, to an age of aesthetic consciousness and high fashion; an age where wonder and science had not yet become enemies, and where new technology was regarded with awe rather than frustration.
The "punk" in steampunk is a reference to cyberpunk, because when steampunk first formed it was comprised essentially of cyberpunk (that is, dystopian high tech sci-fi) stories set during the Victorian period.
   The "punk" in cyberpunk shares a common source with the "punk" in the punk subculture, but they are not derived from one another. The word punk is a very old English term that originally meant a prostitute, but which by the 20th century had evolved into a term meaning an outsider, a street person, or a ruffian (it's fairly clear why the punk rock subculture used this word to describe itself). In cyberpunk stories, the protagonists were largely "punks" in the pre-modern sense, that is outsiders and criminals (most often hackers).
   There is clearly no link between the people of a steampunk setting and members of the punk subculture (simply because the environment that produced our modern "punks" did not exist during the steam age). One could reinterpret cyberpunk hackers into a Victorian context to obtain "steampunks" (producing all manner of reclusive scientists and inventors, professional craftsmen, and military engineers), but that would probably be reading too much into it.
  For all practical purposes, the "punk" in steampunk is a cute turn of phrase used because it sounds interesting and exciting, without any deeper meaning than that.
