Now there is an interesting idea. I believe that what you described is an approximation of what all true artists do, when they give form to their
thoughts. I failed my saving throw a long time ago, but kept going anyway, because I love the feeling of mystery I get when I explore the
thought-forms of a truly gifted artist in 4D.
I wonder what Lovecraft would have thought about modern theoretical physics and the philosophy of no hard edges. I like to think he would have smiled
a bit when he read about multiple worlds, higher dimensions, and multiple universes. I don't imagine he was prone to smiling much, but it gives me a
little charge when I imagine he might have broke with tradition and let one go, for the ages.
Side note: It's a strange syncronicity indeed, that this week, the news from the edge of our solar system is "frothy, with a chance of bubbles."
Let us not forget Bloop..aka..The call of Cthulhu ...the hair raising sound coming from the depths of the ocean that, if from a living creature...is
bigger than a blue whale. 50 degrees south lat. and long. 100degrees west
A quote from The Call...
"Then, driven ahead by curiosity in their captured yacht under Johansen's command, the men sight a great stone pillar sticking out of the sea, and
in S. Latitude 47°9', W. Longitude l23°43', come upon a coastline of mingled mud, ooze, and weedy Cyclopean masonry which can be nothing less than
the tangible substance of earth's supreme terror - the nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh, that was built in measureless aeons behind history by the
vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars."
Yeah, he was self taught, and an amazing writer.. I love his style.. Never knew about the mathematics thing, though, but that may be because i never
paid attention (Math is easily my worse subject).. It's sad that he died penniless and was buried in a dump.. Thankfully, his fans raised enough
money to give him a proper burial and decent resting spot
I've always loved the idea of inter dimensional beings that we can't see.. Makes me think of Acid trips and how it opens the mind to the
possibilities of different realms
In a nutshell: Voyager 1 and 2 are at the outer edge of the solar system, beyond the Heliosphere, which is basically the outer boundary of our suns
magnetic field and solar wind. The solar wind follows the magnetic field lines to this boundary, where they are met by the galactic medium (everything
outside our Heliosphere) and abruptly slow down at the termination shock, where our suns magnetic field is "bent back" by the ionized intersteller
The suns magnetic field spins in opposite directions on the north and south poles, and this creates a "sheet" which gently ripples and gets larger,
the further from our sun in travels. These ripples stack up at the termination shock, creating a compressed zone where our system gives way to the
greater galaxy beyond. The voyager spacecraft have now passed through the termination shock, and the data they have sent back indicates that this
compressed and rippling sheet of forces becomes frothy and bubble-like, outside the heliosphere.
I'm no physicist, but the interesting part is how these bubbles interact with cosmic rays. They force them to move from bubble to bubble, instead of
directly into our system. In a sense, they traverse a labyrinth of strange forthy geometry, before reaching the smooth waves of force inside our
heliosphere, where the ride the rest of the way in like a surfer rides a wave.
It's pretty cool stuff, and immediately reminded me of Lovecraft and Yog Soggoth.

As a further point of interest, both my new songs deal in Lovecraftian imagery. The second song is called "Bubbleonia Rising." I'm not a kid anymore
either, and I don't believe in coincidence.

Wow, while reading this thread and watching the 3D fractal videos, it occurs to me that watching fractals, and especially 3D fractals make me very
uneasy to the point that I get the urge to stop the videos as soon as I start watching them.
Very few things make me uneasy, so that itself is a clue that I should do some research on and watch more of these to figure out why they affect me in
Possibly, it's because they are "infinite", and that I'm at the moment lulled into believing that my current finite existence has a point and a
purpose, but THAT itself is the illusion, and the infinite fractals is the ugly truth ? Who knows ?!?
I'm not a kid anymore, and the video did not give me any uneasy feeling. BUT: I had a good laugh at the last bit where he blows up the last speaker
and then says "It's a good question". Thanks for a good laugh
If you have some red blue 3d glasses(anaglyph) im sure i can dig out a few real 3d 3d fractal flythoughs on youtube.... just because thats the nice
person i am
but if you do have glasses, dont say you wernt warned (this is a public safety announcement, Fractal fly thoughs may damage your sense of reality)
maybe i should have put that warning on my last post ....
I was literally stupefied when I saw the video of the latest Voyager information. The very first thing I thought of was Lovecraft, and then it hit me
-- I have been working on "Bubbleonia" since roughly the moment Voyager had begin to transmit the data back Earthward. There's probably a whole
nuther' thread in there somewhere, about creativity and artistic sensitivity to the "forces" that permeate and wash over our planet like waves. It
sure would explain the trend in entertainment, where ideas seem to come in waves from many different sources at once.
No record yet. Skot and I are still in the songwriting stage at this point. When we have 20 or so songs, we will go in and make a real record. These
are just proof of concept demos at this point. But -- yes, is a huge inspiration, at least lyrically.
just got finished reading dreams in the witches house im going to read another one of his books in the morning just dont know what one anyone want to
give me a list of some to read i got all his books on my computer now just dont know what ones to read next if someone could give me a list preferably
in a order to read that would be great thanks in advance il come back to this thread in the moring to see if there is one provided yet. sorry if i
repeated my self lol kinda tiered and about to go to bed. good night ATS talk to you all tomarow.
