Prof.Cram:
What do you think Lollercaust should be about?

Well i was readin the wiki, where the difference/similarities between The Golden Sphere and the BIP...... what if it was a look at how they are the same thing......

kinda like attractive opposites.... for lack of another description. bringing back some of the absurdities of the PD?


You hit the nail on the head here barumunk. The Golden Sphere Of Possibility was a joke on the Black Iron Prison. One common critique of the BIP literature is that its so bleak and depressing it is unattractive. The GSP metaphor was a satirical response that ended up being a bit more discussion-provoking than some had expected.

The idea stands: You can dress the metaphor up however you want, but we reccommend that you get the fuck out of your own head.

ps: Prof Cram, added a link under literature on the wiki to your page on Pipe Bombs hope you dont mind?

Not at all, but I edited it again. Pipe Bombs was a rant by LHX - I just didn't credit him for some reason when I first uploaded that lecture.

good catch though!

I find your opinion compelling, good Professor. Now the question is, do we drag him into the secret and complex depths of PD.COM's revolutionary underground, or do we stick a propeller beanie on his head and hope he distracts the Special Forces units while we slip out the back way?

Alchemy's only useful interpretation is in metaphors, I think.  Not that I can debate the point right this minute.

I don't know, I only got 40 minutes through it.  To be honest, I was hoping the dude was going to talk about his art more.

Either way, my conclusions serve me better than his probably do.

Link to his art, though?

I cant remember the name now.  I'll have to look it up when I'm less fragile.  Truth be told, I'm only staying awake another 3 hours so I can do my shopping first, then I'm going to bed.  Living on California time while in the UK sucks, it really does.
