    The Egyptians considered writing (which in their case was pictures ) as a form of magic. And if writing of something dangerous, like a snake, they'd draw daggers in it so that the written/drawn snake couldnt hurt anyone.


    ~Seth-Ra
    One fatal tree there stands of knowledge called, forbidden them to taste. Knowledge forbidden? Suspicious. Reasonless. And why should their Lord envy them that? Can it be sin to know? Can it be death? And do they stand by ignorance, is that their happy state, the proof of their obedience and their faith?

    I'm not too well versed in who wrote what and such...

    I did love 'V for Vendetta' by Alan Moore

    Was surprised to find the Silver Surfer originated in France...looked alien to me

    Every day's a school day!

    I like the dagger in the snake...takes paranoia to its highest height.

    hi, not at all. silver surfer was created jack "the king" kirby and stan lee. moebius illustrated a late graphic novel by stan lee.
    anyway moore and moebius are great!
    i loved especially the work of moebius in tandem with jodorowski.
    jodorowski, incidentally, did some great things. his movies are very interesting, i've red somwhere that the original subject of matrix came from him. and I feel compelled to warmly reccomend its book "Psychomagick" to anyone.

    From first glance, I would say that the biggest problem is the separation between the "eye of god" and the general population. Maybe there's a way for the "sheep" to find a hidden express elevator to the apex...

    You would only need an elevator if you needed to go up. Look closely at the picture...
    it is not a pyramid but a table with the eye at the head of it.

    If the sheep decide to roam to the other end of the table they will trample all the others;
    back to little bo peep who is waiting for her lost sheep to return.

    She left them alone, now they are on thier way home...wagging thier tails behind them

    From a wide and detached perceptive - there is nothing wrong with this picture.

    What is - is, because this is what it needs to be.

    The question, then, should be:

    WHY does it need to be like this?

    What purpose does it serve for ALL the involved parties?

    (In our case, the 'involved parties' would be all the sections of the pyramid)

    As our friend Mr. Solomon Levi said:

    "double posts... that's what I get for posting about parallel universes... " (or something along these lines)

    OR, alternatively, you could resort to the unheard of measure of hitting the 'Post Reply' button ONLY one time, even if it takes a while before the screen resets with your message on it
