I don't know if this helps or not, but XViS's videos are highly derivative. It really just depends on what's on your 'radar', I think. It's that frame of reference thing. If you don't share much in common with the artist, their work can be very alienating; sometimes that's good and sometimes it doesn't work out for either party.
This is Cremaster from Matthew Barney, you'll be glad I only posted the trailer...
Of course, I am not offering this video as singular 'evidence' of what XViS has derived his work from, I am just trying to demonstrate that there is a whole underlying aesthetic from which the people at FL draw inspiration.
As far as the music? John Butler seemed to be ahead of the game back in 2010...
I personally am not disturbed by the videos in the slightest. I'm just confused as to why I caught flack from Direne over the spawning fish when XViS's videos contain what they do.

Welcome to our lill brain teaser of a thread. Curious, did you join because of this specific on-going topic?
ETA: Agreed, we are providing a wealth of information to FL's group. What an easy way to amass and study psychological profiles.
Also, something about how you composed and presented your post.... are you affiliated with FL?edit on 18-7-2013 by topdog81 because: (no reason given)

My dad had a refrigerator that he was gonna just give away. Good fridge. He put it out by the road for anyone to take.
Three days later it still sat there.
So he put a sign on it: "For Sale Make Offer".
It was stolen that night.

It's easy to come on here and try to appear wise after the event, for the record, Taking everything Direne said at face value, they act to me like a group based in political idealism, apparantly multi faith, but the model they have chosen to undermine the current paradigm is that of Primordial chaos patterns beneath the level of the Logocratic, they are in a sense vampires that emerge from such archetypes, and challenge the prevailing order.
That is they adopt the mythological premise but have a secular viewpoint toward it, none superstition based.
The premise then of the opening post was correct as confirmed, but they are not seeing things in terms of actual Demons and Vampres
iThe realm of Primordial chaos they see as the quantum, the mirrored reality, and that is were they base their research and philosophies.edit on 18-7-2013 by Kantzveldt because: (no reason given)

Oh, I lurk. I hate speaking up though because, as I said, it's too revealing. I suppose it says something about the pull of language that I surfaced for this thread. The bait was too tempting.
Am I affiliated with FL? Nope. I'm just a (fiction) writer playing with words.
I am interested in whoever makes the videos for FL though because it shows experience with shamanism or certain mind altering chemicals. Traveling down the geometric tunnels and whatnot. The vids are like mini trips in themselves. I also see references to dualism and fractals. The play of patterns. The presence of "entities" if you want to call them that. I would hazard a guess that someone is interested in the impact of various chemicals on language.
I'm also very interested in the music but that's not my field and there's not much I can contribute there.
I'm also interested in the emotional content and the meaning surfacing throughout the thread. It's haunted by deep waters, the abyss, the search for meaning. Whenever I find Choronzon playing I'm fascinated.
Nice to meet you all.

Now I see... The photo you posted is the title of the thread. The theme of the blog post (written by Ayndryl) is "fragmentation" in the context of language processing in individuals with autism. The other titles referenced (amidst information I cannot translate mixed with English) are interesting. (I am not promoting any of these titles, merely sharing them in case someone is interested...) Both are expensive texts.
Communication Issues in Autism Amazon Link
Memory in Autism: Theory and Evidence Amazon Link Cambridge Press
There is also an extensive bibliography of heavy-hitting academic level titles. When I can afford it I might try the "Communication Issues In Autism" book, and there are other titles by that same individual. The second book can be rented, but I'm not sure I want to go that route.
Thanks again for the link, shells!
