  1. The rock drawings from
    the Sahara desert are the
    spookiest I have seen.

    They ignite genetic memory.

  2. The Outer Limits reminds me of the cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band for some reason:

  4. The 4th pic down reminded me of a character from a TV show that was on when I was a kid. So taking a few moments to follow the sync trail, I watched the intro for that show (it was called "Math Patrol" - made in the early 80's). At 0:45, there's kind of a neat thing with a "9" and twin ground spotlights, and Kangaroo man Sidney going between them, up some stairs and through a gate.

  5. I've just have one thing to add to the conversation in this wonderfully cerebrally stimulating cavalcade of illustrations here, Professor Knowles & all ye presents. And that is to raise to everyone's attention an obscure tome from a 17th century Scotsman & Episcopal priest, Robert Kirk. It is entitled The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns, and Fairies. First written in 1691, a year before his alleged disappearance into Elphame/Elfland/Alfheim/The Other World/The Realm of Faerie, it currently enjoys two versions in print. The 1st one being a Dover Publications edition w/ some lovely line drawings from 1933 by then renowned children's lit illustrator, HJ Ford. The other one carries generous annotations by Scots folk musician, author, Mage, Faery Seer, & a personal mentor of mine, RJ Stewart. That one is entitled Robert Kirk: Walker Between the Worlds. He helpfully rewrote it into present day English parlance as to be better understood by a modern readership. Happy hunting, fellow seekers of immortal truths. There's no clearer testament to the Elusive Companion Hypothesis than this. Just remember, with due caution, the immortal words of one Friedrich Nietzsche, "When you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you."

  6. As i scrolled down I kept on expecting that Dave Bowman star-fetus returning to earth as one of the images.

  7. The image next to Hugh Laurie is actually Zurvan (a deity from late Zoroatrianism) who symbolizes time (cf. Aion in Jung).

  8. And Zurvan is also yet another appellate for the Gnostic god, Phanes, pronounced FAE-knees … Cheers

  9. We are following your recent series of posts with great interest. Your consideration of the “Ultraterrestrials” is in keeping with myths the world over. Coincidentally, we are examining a myth of proto beings who populated Earth before humans… from the native American tradition…

  10. So I saw Super 8, right, was it good? Eh, more of the same basic assembly instruction met with more of the same melancholy.

    Wonder what would happen if I BLABBED at this point, well, I know that I would just be "reset" and it would be yet another missed opportunity, besides, no one would believe you, besides, I don't even know if you any of you are real, Ba ha ha, besides ...

    Don't jump to conclusions. You'll get
    yourself in a whole heap of trouble.

  15. Glad to see you're still rocking here. I've not been able to get online for a while - life's been a bit crazy. Love the pictures, some of those figures look fairly armless.

    A bit off topic but may be of interest to you - apparently most crop circle/formation makers in England are on strike this year to made a stand. They have had enough of their work being credited to aliens. Considering how talented some makers are and how much they enjoy making them I'm wondering if they can keep it up for the whole summer, we shall see. There is currently a very noticeable absence of formations.

  16. 7th picture down made me think of the black&white headdresses that adorn the sphinxes on the Chariot tarot card (Rider-Waite deck specifically).

  17. What Pete Hoge said. That photo always creeps me out.

  18. For fun, I made quick notes of first impressions of each picture. Here's what I got: 1st pic-Masonic bathroom. 2nd: Wizard of Oz. No really, that was the first thing...Ed Norton on the third, 4th-"what a depressed little git." 5th-nothing, actually. So those were the words I wrote down. The next-they seem devoid of something, nice robes though, that I've seen on many a priest. 7th-lizard or turtle eyes. 8th-"They have eyes." ninth (ninth circle, council of nine?) "the serpent in the garden has him trapped, as if he was a bug-angel, pinned, by others or himself. Kirby-nuttin'. The green thingy-"Boil boil, toil and trouble." and all I got for Nasa was 10. I resonate strongest with the shakespeare.
