Robots in Disguise




Alan:
A few days back I had the phrase "more than meets the eye" playing over and over in my head. At least now I know why.
I met this cartoonist years ago who did a one-panel comic strip ala FarSide (most of which were terribly unfunny) but there was one that made me laugh nonstop. It was a guy standing in front of an electrical closet and it read "Transformers: Exactly What You See"
If we are transforming the world into our image via the manifestation of reality, or even if we are just talking about seeing things through the vast filter of perspective, then these words have never rang more true:








The Singularity Is Near!


"And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
The scarlet woman is also a great city. Metropolis, where the SolarKing SuperMan reigns.

  1. I was going to point out that the "Machine Man" from Metropolis is literally a robot in disguise and is also literally the Whore of Babylon, but I see Eleleth beat me to it. I love the way this works - not only are we the infinite masks of god experiencing every possible perspective (as Cristal wrote) but we are the hands as well. It's nice to have 6 extra pairs of hands.
