I think he's smiling a Cheshire cat type knowing smile, equanimous, without a care in the world, his antennae (as a type of communication.. or
sensitive awareness.. alertness!) plainly liberated beyond the green-white jaws of death, as if to convey, with awareness and understanding, but
without any concern "hey we all have a role to play"..
But the context can then be expanded to include the ATS logo as possibly being descriptive of something as well, in relation to the whole image, being
also of the same green taken as an average between the plant and apparent
victim, as if to say that there may be something about ATS itself, as
a type of communication medium, and our own role as active and willing participants, drawn here, only to find ourselves thereafter residing in the
"Hotal California" where "you can check in, but you can never leave".
ATS is neutral.. or is it?
Could be it's a "watched channel", like some sort of double or quadruple reverse psy-op? You'd probably be amazed to see the entire visitor IP address
listing that passes through here, and returns day after day, cataloguing, sometimes participating in subtle ways... But if so, who's REALLY in the
from that perspective, it's like a quadruple bind set by me (as a flytrap of symbolic meaning and significance), since it symbolizes the higher
awareness of what might be occuring, allowing us the courage to sit calmly and equanimously in the flytrap with self awareness, our antennae extended,
speaking truth to power
in ever growing numbers ie: we KNOW we're in the trap that was set, but we also know we can spring it, by recognizing
it for what it is, even that some among us (in this case me for creating it as a symbol) might have already come along and sprung on our own behalf
before we even know what was happening (if so you're in my trap, but it's the trap that set's you free).
It has this kind of self-reinforcing, self-referencial quality to it, once an honest inquiry is made into what it might possibly mean, taken both in
parts and as a whole.
Is that little smiling grasshopper dude me, is it you, is it all of us, trapped by the government, or is it them trapped by US, and is ATS a force for
good by speaking truth to power, or, a psychological honey pot by which certain PTB can figure out precisely what we're all thinking, and then create
new wedge issues, and policies both short and long term to deal with us or, once again, sideline us (the self aware little man), along with our
growing Civil Conscious Awareness..?
Or maybe that's just going a little too far... I don't know.
