My top 3 motivations for seeking out the strange and unusual?
3. My significant other tends to say things like "The world is not as interesting as you want it to be" in response to my thoughts on conspiracy theory, ufos, ghosts, etc. I disagree and desire proof enough to change her skeptical views.
2. Went ghost hunting as a teenager for fun one summer and got more than I bargained for and have been hooked on the oddities of the world ever since.
1. "I myself am strange and unusual"
I guess I expect people to react the same way I did when I first saw it. Something like "That is seriously weird and friggin' creepy" or something similar.
Pareidolia is a type of illusion or misperception involving a vague or obscure stimulus being perceived as something clear and distinct. For example, in the discolorations of a burnt tortilla one sees the face of Jesus Christ. Or one sees the image of Mother Teresa or Ronald Reagan in a cinnamon bun or a man in the moon

3. What did you say to yourself about it once it was finished and posted?
from The Spirit in Man, Art and Literature by CG Jung (Princeton University Press) pg 82
This is the secret of great art and its effect upon us. The creative process, so far as we are able to follow it at all, consists in the unconscious activation of an archtypal image, and in elaborating and shaping this image into the finished work.

I'll agree with the general consensus that ATS membership is by and large paranoid and conspiratorial in nature. My current avatar is on the dark side, but it's far from foreboding.
My previous avatar, on the other hand was quite the opposite:
I base my avatars on things that resonate with me. I'm more of a blue girl myself, . . .

So what does my Avatar say about me? Hmmmm..............
A weird, scary, three eyed man in an alien enviornment, kinda the way I feel when I go to Wal-Mart!
After the way I have been treated by the general public, I kinda wish I did look like my avatar in real life.
At least people would have a reason to stare then!

There's NO possibility for genuine Islam to coexist with anything else over the long haul.
Satanists, likewise are never going to be buddy buddy with Pentecostals nor vice versa.
Even rabid Hindus burn Christians to death in our era.

Mine is a nice avatar. I make funky art pieces and I love anything that has to do with the brain.

John-Q as in john q public.
Which is another way to say I would like to remain somewhat anonymous.
It's also from a game I used to play a lot. "hitman"
Oh, and I own a lot of firearms and I'm an avid shooter.....
You'll get my guns when you pry them from my cold dead hands
Nothing to dark there...
