Thanks so much for checking things out, St Accelerated Evolution!  :fnord:



Last spring I lucked into an advanced screening of War for the Planet of the Apes, and wrote an exuberantly excessive review, now up at metaheadcanon  :fnord: :fnord:

what's that subtle symbol in the hawk's wake?

it evokes ankh

it evokes a fractal

it evokes a caduceus

In the moment it was just mindless patterning, so as to use motion lines to make the sky texture less boring, but now that you mention it I see an old sigil I used to use in the early 2000's, in a kind of fractal form.

It was meant to represent the "octave of energy" so there's a combo of 8, ∞, and the DNA double helix.

Did you ever run into the Bubblefish / OS 012 meme back in the day?

It was this 3 valued logic system that this guy would take to every bbs imaginable and pester the hell out of everyone with it. He was RAW, Leary, McKenna, and Fuller influenced, so I can imagine him ending up here at some point.

I engaged w/ him on deoxy and ended up having fun with it, so I modified the octave sigil to go with the OS012 meme, like so:



(Be careful w/ that meme, it's an antique!)

Thought that Vision series was a cool presentation of the bio/logogram idea.

Vision's position as an entity created solely to function through the logogram without having any particularly demanding needs to otherwise make judgments in accordance to was novel to me at the time, a year ago, but as of now, I am less sure of the differences between 'natural' born humans and androids as both creations seem motivated by the socialization of values rather than the negentropy of the species.

Extremely interesting take on the Vision series!

Quote
as both creations seem motivated by the socialization of values rather than the negentropy of the species.

What a wonderful phrase to contemplate!

Much of what western sci-fi says about emergent artificial intelligence, eastern philosophy says about human intelligence, so I can dig the idea of that being a largely false dichotomy.

for the second part, if I'm interpreting those phrases correctly, I suppose the hope is that the socialization of values attends to the negentropy of the species? Though a lack of consensus on the ways & means of the process remains particularly problematic!

Speaking of cybernetic hive minded power fantasies, I re-read GM's Marvel Boy this weekend, which is some super strong medicine!

Oh shit! That FQ gallery is spectacular! Thanks for sharing, P3nT4gR4m!

He's one of the all time greats to me, esp when paired w/ GM  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

My comic reading has been a bit slow lately, but have been very much enjoying Tom King's work.

Ex-CIA officer turned excellent comic writer, doing his obligatory mainstream superhero run, and a very good one at that!

His Mister Miracle re-launch looked cool enough to pull me into an actual comic shop, a fairly impressive feat!


And from there I fell into his exhilarating and highly addictive Vision mini series:


The other series that managed to get me to spend cold hard cash in a brick & mortar comic shop is Ed Piskor's X-Men Grand Design.



EP, formerly of the entirely beautiful Hip Hop Family Tree, makes the X-Men feel like wonderfully weird underground indie comix.
