most days i walk my dog past a field full of cows. i look up, theyre frozen. staring at my dog: a cattle dog. they know. they intuitively know they are subservient to her. she doesnt care, hardly looks up, but they know. i feel like a dick saying it but many people are like this.
out of all the people in my life, online, offline, family, old friends, maybe in a classroom, anywhere, who have ever had a problem with me, know how many of them have ever actually just straight up talked to me about it. zero. never. because they know. they know their own nature
even on here, this is just an accelerated example of real life, im too busy for it to bother me but its just interesting, if i see someone talking shit or having the wrong idea about me, sometimes ill hit them up. ask whats up. man to man. they never respond. ever. not once. ever
its interesting because my theological views require me to reject the idea that god has some “tiered” system. but down here in fallen world, people take on natures and accept them, i guess. that of the rat, the cow, i guess theres nothing you can do about it. weird aspect of life
a friend told me a story, he was in a classroom, the teacher accidentally said something very mildly “off color” and immediately apologized. someone in the class reported the teacher, instead of talking to them. that person is like a rat. its difficult for me to accept this fact.
theres also a kind of “socrates effect” in this for me, like when the oracle tells socrates hes smart and hes like “...but im not”. i can look at myself, theres no way im cracking into even halfway up the % of exemplary individuals. but im not like “that”. guess its complicated.

normies still dont get what NFTs are which is totally fine and extremely understandable but the narrative they got funneled into about it being some type of hyper-nefarious scam is really something
they cant see any of the massive other nefarious collusions you try to show them but suddenly everyone that ever had a deviant art account has cracked the code and realized that theres a multi level scheme to get people to sell digital art in a new way and plz dont get sucked in
i havent done any NFT stuff so i guess im neutral, im definitely not against it, but i would put money on it being an emergent tech that will pop off in art and video games (especially video games), once its rebranded and given a social media / normal people friendly interface

thread below Image
had the idea to periodically release some smaller fine art style prints from the studio in small packs with some stickers ive been printing along the way. did the first one sometime last year, made 40, they sold out, it was a good time. time for chapter 2

now its time for the [second] vibe pack. "second inkjection" - american cryptids print with the suite of theo-aesthetica stickers. some new. some classic. let me show you all about it in this thread. u can look for fun even if u dont want to pick it up… ImageImageImageImage

really been feeling a deep atavistic desire to roam around a low polygon or pixelated video game city for a while now. trying to see what this “means”, like when your body is craving one thing, it actually is telling you youre missing some vitamin or so called “nutrient”.
cyber realm aesthetics peaked for me w things like n64, half life 1, gta 2, i need a large gap between the image + reality. just like real life, therein lies the artistry. i dont play games anymore but i still think about that low polygon feel sometimes, theres something about it

this isnt true at at, in fact although its almost impossible to tell i bet its kind of the opposite, it seems like the gap between the invention of the camera and the invention of photoshop has an abnormally large number of well known alleged miracles
i mean, hello
our lady of knock
fatima (whatever u think about, seems like one of the most largely seen miraculous things ever)
the bulk of UFO phenomena
the bulk of bigfoot sightings + other cryptids
lots of weird fairy stuff (some fake, like those fake fairy photos)
