Coincidence. Maybe he was thinking about Lenin and Phils subconscious powers just made that to the curtain :wink:

It's God, who is in reality, me. (check the avatar). I am everywhere. :evil:

That was a lovely page. Now to get back to building my 200-foot-tall bronze statue of The Grand Holy Abe Vigoda of the Eagle Nebula. Hey it kinda rhymes, too!

My mother always saw a Conquistador in the abstract 1970's wallpaper in our kitchen, and she was anything but artsy, psychedelic or even artsitically inclined. I have seen 'The Green Man' in waving tree limbs, gnarly faces in Florida oaks (which I probably learned to see from watching the apple trees in The Wizard of Oz when I was quite young), angels and devils in the clouds while on acid, with the attending moods of inspiration and dread (like M.C. Escher's 'Angels and Bats mandala drawing), and so, my home now has many 'faces' (often from the store Design Toscano) - Green Men masks, mythological beings, 'oak leaf' faces, gargoyles, grotesques, and Alex Grey posters.

The impartation of eidetic images to random patterns is part of our human propensity to seek meaning in apparent chaos and meaninglessness. The thing is, meaning DOES exist. Just as GOD created from the Void, we, in GOD's 'image and likeness,' do the same on a human level. Not merely animism or the attributing of personality to impersonal nature, the Intelligence or LOGOS which is prior to (meta-physical) the physical laws of matter, suffuses all of creation. For the religious mind, the universe is the externalized ideas of GOD. Life is but a dream, and GOD is the dreamer - Vishnu dreams all of this in Hinduism. Why should the immanent and ever-present LOGOS not remind us that [s]he, here and now, is sentient, through water-stains, cloud-images in the atmosphere and in distant nebulas? As Plato maintained, the Ideas are Eternal templates - Archetypes - whose images reveal the invisible Intelligence that gives rise to our intelligent existence which is capable of catching glimpses even through our senses. Life is SO much more interesting and joyous through this mode of apprehension.
